    do you think will happen when they only have one or two people who can do marriages in that county?  They will probably have to relent on their "all marriages or no marriages" policy just to clear the backlog.

    You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.

      a "reasonable accommodation." "Reasonable accommodation" means that the changes can be made with minimal disruption, if any, to the workplace -- and if you can't adequately serve the people you are supposed to serve, that would be significant, impermissible disruption.  

      There's no indication in the story -- none, zero -- that, after these employees were reassigned to tasks where they do not perform ANY marriages, that there are now insufficient numbers of employees to perform marriages.  Presumably, those employees who will perform marriages will spend more time doing that, and those who won't perform marriages will pick up some of their other duties.

        This about about the 7th time you've said this.  There's also no indication that the employees were all 100% efficiently reassigned.  That's just your wish based on no evidence.
