Disability Services works with both the employee and immediate supervisor to identify reasonable accommodations which will enable successful performance in various employment settings. Accommodations may include adaptive equipment, facility modifications, an adjustment to work schedule or job duties, as well as a range of other creative solutions, so that the disabled employee will be able to continue to perform the essential functions of his/her job. Accommodations are determined on a case-by-case basis, through a cooperative effort between the disabled faculty or staff member, their supervisor, and Disability Services.
Employees who request workplace accommodations directly related to a disability, which impacts their ability to achieve the requirements of the job, are encouraged to register with Disability Services.
Staff are qualified to evaluate documentation submitted by the employee to determine eligibility under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and to further recommend specific workplace accommodations that would be appropriate in these situations.
