Reasonable Accommodation & Interactive Process

University MPP, Staff or Academic Employees:

ADA/FEHA Reasonable Accommodation Request

Sacramento State provides reasonable accommodations for employees with sensory, mental or physical disabilities. A reasonable accommodation is an accommodation that enables the employee to perform the essential functions of their position, is medically necessary, and does not create an undue hardship.

Please contact the Office for Equal Opportunity for the “Report for Certification” form. It is your responsibility to see that your health care provider returns the “Request for Certification” form to the Office for Equal Opportunity. You are not required to disclose to your immediate supervisor the medical basis for a requested accommodation. If additional information is needed to respond to your request, the University may request that you ask your health care provider to confirm your disability and/or the need for the requested accommodation.

If you are only requesting an ergonomic workstation evaluation, you do not need to complete the “Request for Certification” form. Please contact Environmental Health & Safety at (916) 278-6456 or visit their website at www.csus.edu/aba/EHS/  to learn more about ergonomic resources.

Medical records are confidential and are maintained in the Office for Equal Opportunity, not in departmental files.

If you have questions regarding accommodation, please contact the Office for Equal Opportunity by phone at 916-278-5770, by fax at 916-278-3411, or by campus mail to campus zip 6032.

To request accommodation related materials in an alternative format or to request an interpreter or other accommodation during the disability accommodation process, please contact the Office for Equal Opportunity at 916-278-5770 or william.bishop@csus.edu.

Below are definitions and guidelines for employees, supervisors, and HR in responding to employee requests for reasonable accommodation and engaging in the interactive process.
