ADA Reasonable Accommodation Guidelines

Employees

Employees seeking disability support and accommodation should contact the ADA Manager, located in the office of Human Resource Management. The ADA Manager has been designated as the campus authority to verify employee disabilities and to assist the appropriate department administrator with identifying specific accommodations for employees with documented disabilities. All accommodations are individualized based on the disability and the nature of the job.

Job Accommodation Request

Any employee who needs a modified work environment as the result of a temporary or permanent medical condition is encouraged to arrange modifications on an informal basis.  Employees or the appropriate department administrators, department chair, or program director in the department or unit may initiate an informal work environment modification.  Under the informal procedure, it is not necessary to make a determination of the employee's disability status. Please contact the ADA Manager at 310-243-3771 for assistance when considering a work modification.

The formal accommodation request process shall be used to resolve accommodation needs after informal procedures have been exhausted.  An employee may also begin discussions at this point without using the informal process.  The ADA Manager will assist in obtaining the information needed to ensure the department is in a position to make an informed decision regarding reasonable accommodations. 

All formal requests for reasonable accommodations must be in writing using the ADA Reasonable Accommodation Request Form and Physician Disability Verification Form.  The appropriate administrator receiving formal requests for accommodations shall direct employees to submit their request in writing by using the aforementioned forms or providing the information requested on the forms. 

Employees are urged to contact the ADA Manager regarding any questions or concerns regarding job accommodations.
