» Workplace Accommodations

Chapman University is committed to providing reasonable workplace accommodations to qualified employees with disabilities. Workplace accommodations are intended to assist individuals with disabilities to overcome limitations that interfere with their ability to perform the functions of their job and to enjoy the benefits and privileges of employment. The Equal Opportunity Office (EOO) administers the university’s disability accommodation process for employees.

This process includes determining whether an employee’s medical condition constitutes a disability as defined under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Rehabilitation Act (RA), and California Fair Employment & Housing Act (FEHA) and working to ensure that a qualifying employee has an opportunity to engage in the interactive process. Through the interactive process HR will engage with the employee, their manager, and their physician to provide reasonable accommodations that will enable them to perform the essential elements of their job. We encourage you to review the "Interactive Process" and "FAQs for Employees with Disabilities" sections below, prior to starting your accommodation request.

Each request for accommodation is assessed on an individual basis. As an initial step in the accommodation process, please click the "Begin Request" button below to submit an accommodation request. Your responses will help us understand your medical condition impacts your ability to perform the functions of your job and what accommodations you believe would be effective at overcoming those limitations. While the university takes an employee’s specific request for accommodation into account, it may provide a different, effective accommodation.

The COVID-19 related accommodations that were offered to employees prior to the availability of vaccines have expired as of July 1, 2021.
