Put a Cap on Employee Accomodation Costs

If a disabled employee is hired with full knowledge of the requirements of the position and it's location, they should not be allowed to insist upon various other unreasonable accomodations. If a non-physically challenged employee is hired and then demands accomodation for ergonomic or health reasons, follow a protocol that says the agency will not pay unreasonable costs or costs not required at other agencies for the same illness/disability. Also, the accomodation should not affect other employees. The other employees should be notified in advance of any possible change that may need to be made in case that accomodation affects them negatively. I am not trying to be heartless. Some people are abusing this system if they become disgruntled with management or if they don't want to work.
