Meeting Legal Accommodation Requirements for Placed Employees



Whether it’s a more flexible schedule, special equipment, leave, reassignment, or some other accommodation, staffing firms’ placed employees have the same right to accommodation under employment laws that a client’s internal employees have. However, when it comes to employees who are working on site with a client, staffing firms often find that complying with these requirements is complicated by the fact that the client generally controls the very areas that need to be accommodated.
