Workplace Accommodations

The University of South Alabama is committed to nondiscrimination and employment of qualified individuals with physical and mental disabilities in accordance with the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as amended by the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), and state and local laws and ordinances.  An individual is considered to have a disability if he or she has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such an impairment, or is regarded as having such an impairment.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADAAA prohibit discrimination against a qualified individual with a disability. A qualified individual is one who can perform the essential functions of his or her job with or without a reasonable accommodation. A reasonable accommodation is designed to assist an employee in the performance of his or her job without placing an undue hardship on the University or posing a direct threat to the employee or to other individuals.

It is the employee’s responsibility to request an accommodation. The University’s Human Resources department has been designated to coordinate the requests of applicants and employees for reasonable workplace accommodations.
