Request a Workplace Accommodation

If you are an individual with a disability, and feel a workplace accommodation is necessary for you to perform the essential functions of your position, it is important for you to disclose your disability. Disclosure simply means to let appropriate personnel know about your disability. Disclosing a disability, if not visible, is a very personal decision. This can be done at any point in the employment process (i.e. before the job offer, after job offer but before employment, or after employment begins).

An employee with a disability who wishes to request an accommodation must contact his/her supervisor or Faculty and Staff Disability Services located in Human Resource Services. All University employees in a supervisory capacity are required to report to Faculty and Staff Disability Services any request for accommodation received.

If you prefer to work directly Faculty and Staff Disability Services, it is important to know that your supervisor may still need to learn about your disability, in order to appropriately provide an accommodation. The information disclosed will be kept on a need-to-know basis. When requesting an accommodation, you will need to provide documentation of your disability, including limitations you experience in completing the essential functions of the position.

Provided below are forms necessary, to help facilitate this process and gather information.
