An accommodation is any modification or adjustment to a job or the work environment that will enable a qualified applicant or employee with a disability to participate in the application process or to perform essential job functions.
Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities.
Reasonable Accommodations can include, but are not limited to:
- making changes to work procedures
- providing documents in a different format
- using special equipment
- using a sign language interpreter
Job candidates and employees do not need to complete the self-identification form in order to request an accommodation.
