Remote Work Was Not a Reasonable Accommodation for a Team Member Position

Page Content

A health care fraud specialist (HCFS) for the Defense Health Agency (DHA) who worked on a four-person team could not establish that remote work was a reasonable accommodation for his position, the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled.

In April 2010, the DHA hired the plaintiff as an HCFS assigned to the Program Integrity Office (PIO) in Aurora, Colo. As an HCFS, the plaintiff coordinated with various law enforcement agencies to investigate fraud in the military’s health care system.
