UC Davis is committed to providing equal employment opportunities to qualified individuals with disabilities. The University engages in an interactive process to consider employee requests for reasonable accommodation when such accommodations are necessary for the employee to perform essential job functions.
A "reasonable accommodation" is any reasonable adjustment to a job or work environment that permits a qualified employee to perform the essential functions of the job position. Employees are responsible for informing the University when a reasonable accommodation is needed. The University will consider an employee's preferred form of accommodation, but need not agree to the employee's preferred form of accommodation if another form of accommodation is available that is equally effective.
Employees should initiate discussions about reasonable accommodations with their direct supervisor. Disability Management Services can assist departments in providing reasonable accommodations to any staff, faculty, academic, or student employee with disability-related limitations or restrictions.
Employees who have questions, concerns, or complaints related to suspected discrimination on the basis of disability or failure to accommodate are encouraged to contact the Harassment and Discrimination Assistance and Prevention Program or the ADA Compliance Officer about their concerns or to obtain information about filing a formal complaint.
