Michael J. Raspa, Jr. v. Office of the Sheriff of the County of Gloucester

6-12-07 (A-53-06)

An employee must possess the bona fide occupational
qualifications for the job position that employee seeks to
occupy in order to trigger an employer’s obligation to
reasonably accommodate the employee to the extent required by
the Law Against Discrimination (LAD). An employer may
reasonably limit light duty assignments to those employees whose
disabilities are temporary, and the availability of light duty
assignments for temporary disabled employees does not give rise
to any additional duty on the part of the employer to assign a
permanently disabled employee indefinitely to an otherwise
restricted light duty assignment.
