Body Odor

People may have body odor for various reasons, including disability. Individuals with body odor may not be aware that their odor is offensive to others, so employers need to start by discussing the issue with the employee. If body odor results from a disability, employers should consider whether reasonable accommodation is appropriate. Accommodations come in a variety of solutions for a specific limitation. See below for some ideas to help you get started.
