ADA Accommodations

There are workplace barriers that keep individuals from performing jobs which they can do with some form of reasonable accommodation. Reasonable accommodation removes workplace barriers for individuals with disabilities. Reasonable accommodations are provided to qualified persons with disabilities who are applicants, staff, or faculty members who are able to achieve the essential functions of their position with or without an accommodation, unless restricted by an undue hardship. When an individual decides to request an accommodation, the individual must let the employer know that he/she needs an adjustment or change at work for a reason related to a medical condition and provide medical document unless the disability is visible.  The Director ADA Compliance will begin the interactive process once the appropriate information is provided.  If you have any questions about disabilities, accommodations, work place barriers, physical barriers, ADA training, web accessibility,  or simply want an opportunity to chat with the Director ADA Compliance, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.  We are always ready to assist you.  We are proactive about removing as many physical barriers as possible on UNF’s campus.
