Reasonably accommodating disabilities
Determination of disability will comply with the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) which requires a broad interpretation of the term and generally does not require an extensive analysis.
Essential Functions: Essential functions are those job duties that are fundamental to the position that the individual holds or desires.
It is intended to be a flexible approach that centers on the communication between an employer and the individual requesting reasonable accommodation, but may (and often does) involve obtaining relevant information from a supervisor and an individual's health care provider.
This process begins upon receipt of an oral or written request for reasonable accommodation.
An individual who is only regarded as having a disability is not entitled to reasonable accommodation.
This Policy, and the accompanying Procedures, fully comply with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, Executive Order 13164 (requiring federal agencies to establish procedures to facilitate the provision of reasonable accommodation), and EEOC regulations at 29 C. Scope: The policies and procedures herein apply to all EEOC employees and applicants for employment.made on a case-by-case basis, considering such factors as the nature and net costs of the accommodation, the overall financial resources of the EEOC, and the impact of the accommodation on the operation of the agency, including the impact on the EEOC's ability to conduct business.
