A reasonable accommodation could be restructuring of your job, restructuring of your physical situation; maybe you need an ergonomic, maybe you need a stool because you have a back injury and you can’t stand, maybe you need less hours, like part-time work, or maybe you need leave, which could be intermittent leave, or it can be leave for some time. And the other option is maybe you need another open position, because you can no longer perform your position.
