Staff/Faculty Registration Process

  • In order to qualify for accommodations, staff and faculty must be diagnosed with a disability.
    • A disability is defined as a physical, mental, medical, or psychological impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
  • Workplace accommodations are adjustments to the adjustment to a job or work environment that makes it possible for an individual with a disability to perform their job duties.  
  • These accommodations do not alter the fundamental nature or essential responsibilities of a job.
  • Submit OASID registration form. Gold piece of paper icon
  • Provide clinical or medical disability documentation. Clipboard icon
  • Meet with a staff member to discuss accommodations. Calendar icon

Documentation Criteria

  • Clinical/medical documentation should include:
    • The nature of the diagnosis
    • How the assessment of the diagnosis was done (e.g., battery of tests administered)
    • An assessment of the level of impact that the disability has on function
    • Professional recommendation for accommodations
    • Whether your condition is permanent/stable and the recommended timeframe for reassessment

COVID-19 Related Accommodations

  • Employees who may be at heightened risk for severe illness if they contract COVID-19 may be eligible for reasonable accommodations in the workplace.
  • Evolving information regarding high risk categories related to COVID-19 can be found on the CDC website.
    • If you believe you have a condition that qualifies as high risk and would like to seek accommodations, please complete the OASID registration process to meet with a staff member.
  • If you do not have a disability related concern, contact your supervisor or HR generalist.
  • Employees who have concerns about returning to work onsite for other non-disability reasons should not go through the OASID registration process.


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 workspace, are encouraged to utilize the resources below to determine what support may help to alleviate symptoms.
