- You may request an accommodation informally by discussing the need for accommodation with your supervisor (See “Informal Procedures to Request Accommodations” in the Classified or Academic Staff Disability Accommodation Policy).
- You may request an accommodation formally by submitting your confidential Disability Request Form to your DDR.
- If your manager or supervisor requests confidential medical information or documentation, contact your DDR.
- Your DDR will coordinate the decision-making process with your manager or supervisor which may include interactive discussions with you to identify reasonable accommodations.
- Your disability and accommodations are confidential; therefore, your manager or supervisor may not disclose this information to co-workers and staff.
- If you discuss your disability or accommodations with co-workers and staff, your manager or supervisor’s ability to maintain confidentiality is compromised. If you transfer, are promoted, or are reinstated to a position in a different division or agency, your DDR will not forward information about your disability or any accommodations that were provided. Therefore, if you need accommodations in the new position, you need to advise your new supervisor or manager.
For clarification or additional information about confidentiality, contact your DDR or the Disability Coordinator/Employment.
