As the University prepares for a phased and safe return to campus, the Department of Human Resources recognizes that some employees may require an accommodation due to medical reasons or family responsibilities.
It has added new resources to support supervisors and staff to the Workplace Accommodation website, including:
- The Duty to Accommodate: A Guide for Supervisors. This document provides an overview of the role and responsibilities of supervisors with respect to workplace accommodation and highlights examples of reasonable accommodations within the context of the COVID-19 pandemic.
- Workplace Accommodation Request form. This form is designed to gather the initial information required to facilitate the accommodation process, including reasons for the request, type of accommodation being sought, and expected duration. In the case of a disability or medical accommodation, this form also provides guidance regarding documentation to substantiate the request.
- Frequently Asked Questions.
Human Resources encourages supervisors and staff to become familiar with the resources found in the Workplace Accommodation website.
