It is the policy of the Department of Human Services to provide reasonable accommodation based on the provisions of the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination and the Americans with Disabilities Act and the interpretive regulations.  The NJLAD provides that:

 

“Unless it can be clearly shown that a person’s disability would prevent such person from performing a particular job, it is an unlawful employment practice to deny to an otherwise qualified person with a disability the opportunity to obtain or maintain employment, or to advance in position in his job, solely because such person is a person with a disability or because such person is accompanied by a service or guide dog.”   See N.J.S.A. 10:5-29.1.
