ACCOMMODATION

An accommodation is any change in the work environment or policy and procedure that enables an individual with a disability to have equal employment opportunities.

The State provides reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities who are employees or applicants for employment unless it would cause an undue hardship or constitute a direct threat as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act.
