Washington State University (WSU) includes a network of services to help students, employees, and other members of the university community have access to the university, its services, and events. The information below is intended to guide staff and faculty to locate the appropriate resources to address their accessibility needs.
Current WSU employees may contact their supervisors, their department chairs, or Human Resource Services (HRS) if they believe they may need a reasonable accommodation to perform the essential functions of their position or have questions about the reasonable accommodation process. HRS Disability Services is responsible for overseeing many systemwide leave and disability-related programs and services such as:
- Reasonable accommodations
- Medical leave
- Pregnancy related leave
- Military related leave
- Long term disability claims
- Workers’ compensation
- Shared leave
In addition to consulting with HRS Disability Services, employees and supervisors may find the Compliance & Civil Rights Reasonable Accommodations Dos and Don’ts helpful. You can also review the Supervisors and Title I of the ADA webinar developed by Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities and The JAN Workplace Accommodation Toolkit to aid your understanding of reasonable accommodations and the interactive process.
