Employees and Applicants
The Office of Accommodation and Accessibility Services (OEOC-AAS) helps employees, including student employees with requesting accommodations and addressing accessibility concerns.
To be eligible to receive an accommodation, individuals must have an impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
Those who wish to be considered for reasonable accommodations must submit current documentation (i.e., medical/educational/diagnostic reports) from qualified professionals as well as supporting historical records and materials.
We have an interactive process for employees who want to be considered for reasonable accommodations. This process includes the employee, OEOC-AAS and the supervisor/HR representative.
A barrier is an obstacle or anything that prevents a person with a disability from fully participating in in all aspects of society because of their disability. If you or someone you know is experiencing a barrier, please report it.
This video explains why companies doing business with the federal government ask job applicants and employees to voluntarily self-identify if they have a disability, and the important role that self-identifying plays in ensuring equal employment opportunity for people with disabilities.
The Office of Accommodation and Accessibility Services is charged with the responsibility of working with qualified employees with disabilities in exploring possible reasonable accommodations in accordance with university policy.
