An individual with a disability may require an accommodation to perform the essential functions of a job. Depending on the circumstances, example accommodations could include:
Making existing facilities readily accessible and usable by individuals with disabilities.
Modifying a work schedule, such as including more frequent breaks.
Restructuring a job position.
Acquiring or modifying equipment or devices, such as a headset or a sit/stand desk.
Providing a qualified reader or interpreter.
These are only examples. The accommodations that can be made in your case may depend on the nature of your disability, your school, and other factors.
To request accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), follow these steps:
1. Complete the Employee Request for Accommodation
2. Have your physician complete the Medical Verification Form
3. Send the completed forms, along with a description of the accommodations you’re requesting (if possible), to the HR Disability Management Team:
Human Resources Disability Management
Phone: (720) 423-3312
Fax: (720) 423-3853
The Disability Management Team will then schedule a meeting, called the interactive process, to discuss accommodations.
