Undue hardship

Under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), an undue hardship is an accommodation that would cause a significant difficulty to an employer. To determine whether an accommodation would cause an undue hardship, you have to consider the resources and circumstances of the particular employer in relation to the cost or difficulty of providing the specific accommodation.

Undue hardship is similar to undue burden under Title II (state and local government) and Title III (businesses and nonprofit organizations that are open to the public).
