Employee Accommodations

Employee Accommodations


Employees with a documented disability are eligible for accommodations through the Office of Access and Services for Individuals with Disabilities (OASID). A reasonable accommodation is any change to the job, to the way the job is done, or the work environment that allows a person with a disability to perform the job’s essential functions. These accommodations include but are not limited to:

  • Workspace adjustments
  • Work schedule adjustments
  • Provide or adjust a product, equipment, or software
  • Provide an aid or a service to increase access

 

In order to receive accommodations, employees must register with OASID by submitting an Accommodation Request and providing clinical documentation of their disability. Once the request is received, the employee will engage in an interactive dialogue with OASID

staff and the employee’s supervisor to assess whether an employee’s disability can be

reasonably accommodated. Accommodations will remain confidential unless an employee

specifically requests for the accommodations to be disclosed to other parties.

 

COVID-19 Accommodations

The Office of Human Resources and OASID will work with employees who are most at-risk for complications from COVID-19 (Medical Conditions at Risk for COVID-19 ), and the employee’s supervisors, to ensure that these individuals have the necessary resources to work as safely as possible. Employees are encouraged to register with OASID by submitting an Accommodation Request, which is completed through a secure intake process. In the Accommodation Request, individuals will be asked to:

  • Identify and attest that their health or other factors place them at greater risk of serious illness if they contract the COVID-19 virus
  • Provide details about their work environment concerns related to COVID-19
  • Indicate what needs and resources they feel are necessary to perform their job safely
  • Provide documentation of their disability

 

Ergonomic Workstations

Employees that have a diagnosed disability, such as a musculoskeletal disorder (MSD), that requires an ergonomic office item to alleviate their symptoms, are encouraged to register with OASID to determine what accommodations they may be eligible to receive.

 

Employees that do not have a diagnosed condition that requires ergonomic accommodations, but are experiencing discomfort related to their physical work space, are encouraged to utilize the resources below to determine what support may help to alleviate symptoms.

 

Notes

If you have a disability and are interested in registering with OASID, and/or if you have any

questions or concerns related to disability access and accommodation, please email oasid@tc.edu for more information.
