One of the candidates for our open analyst position is highly qualified, but she is also legally deaf. I'm concerned about possible communication issues with colleagues and key business partners. Can this factor into my hiring decision?

Your decision must be based on whether the candidate is able to perform the job, with or without reasonable accommodation. Thus, it's vital that you consider what accommodations might be made to mitigate or eliminate any potential issues. This will ensure that you fulfill our legal and ethical obligations. More importantly, it could also ensure that you don't miss out on someone who might be the most creative and skilled analyst available. Her unique perspective may benefit your team in ways you can't imagine.
