ADA Accommodations

Americans with Disabilities Act, Title I

Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, better known as the ADA, prohibits discrimination against employees and applicants with disabilities who with or without reasonable accommodation can perform the essential functions of the jobs they hold or seek.

Reasonable Accommodation for Applicants and Staff

It is the policy of DHS to make reasonable accommodations for known physical or mental limitations of a qualified applicant or employee with a disability unless the agency can show the accommodation would be an undue hardship or fundamental alteration of the employment or business.  DHS will review requests for accommodation and determine if the request is reasonable and can be offered or if the agency is unable to honor the request.  The agency​ may also consider alternative accommodations, so long as they are effective.

Please contact your direct supervisor, OHR representative, or the ADA Coordinator in OEMS to request a reasonable accommodation.
