    When providing Accommodation to an employee who requires light duties due to medical and perhaps may never return to full duties, can a lower wage be offered? For example, the employee can only dust and wipe surfaces and enough work can be offered, however does the employer have to pay the full rate of pay?

    As a general accommodations principle, I don’t believe full wage is necessarily required but there may be Human Rights, ESA and/or WCB guidelines in play that I don’t know about. Can you tell me which jurisdiction you’re in (or subject to) so I can look it up? You can contact me directly at glennd@bongarde.com or 203 354-4532 if you want to speed things up.
