Robert Cady, an engineer, is suing Remington Arms Co. for failing to accommodate his back injury after requesting his job requirements be altered following the aggravation of his disability. The case questions the murky notion of what constitutes an appropriate invocation of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Sometimes, employees with injuries do not provide supervisors with adequate information to make reasonable accommodation pertinent. A jury will choose whether or not Cady sufficiently notified his employer that his back injury required Cady's to be assigned new tasks. The court has already found that Remington was aware of Cady's disability.
