Medical Documentation in Support of a Patient’s Accommodation Request

An individual suffering from Environmental Illness or Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (EI/MCS) may request an accommodation from their employee under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Often, as part of this request, sufficient medical documentation in support of the patient’s accommodation request is needed since medical providers often play a key role in the success of a workplace accommodation.

The Job Accommodation Network has put together this professional fact sheet document to help medical providers give the necessary supporting documentation for their patients who are suffering from EI or MCS.
