According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), undue hardship means:

Undue hardship is a limitation on the employer's obligation to provide reasonable accommodation. The EEOC refers to undue

not only to financial difficulty, but to reasonable accommodations that are unduly extensive, substantial, or disruptive, or those that would fundamentally alter the nature or operation of the business.
