Workplace Accommodations and Disability Services

Overview
Workplace Accommodations
HR Disability

Overview

Faculty and staff with permanent or temporary medical conditions may have a spectrum of needs that can be addressed by Disability Services:

  • To arrange permanent or temporary accommodations in your workplace.
  • To assist you in understanding the benefits available to you during a medical leave and the documentation you need to submit.
  • To ease your transition from a medical leave back to a job with the University.¬†

Whatever your circumstances, we encourage you to contact Disability Services or the Return to Work Program for a confidential consultation.

The HR Disability office also offers an overview presentation on different types of leaves and related procedures.

Please remember to complete all applicable paperwork (e.g., the New York State Disability Form DB450) when going on a leave. For general information about leaves, Officers can consult Benefits in Brief; union-affiliated Support Staff should refer to the appropriate collective bargaining agreement.
