Job Accomodation

Palomar College is committed to providing services to employees who need an accommodation to perform assigned duties of their position due to a disability/medical condition.

This is in compliance with District Policy, Collective Bargaining Agreements, the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act.

Reasonable Accommodation

An accommodation is reasonable if it does not impose an undue hardship on the district. Reasonable accommodations can be any modification or adjustment to a job or the work environment that will enable an employee with a disability to perform essential job functions.

Examples can include but are not limited to: making facilities accessible, adjusting work schedules the redistribution of non-essential marginal job functions, and/or providing assistive devices or equipment. An employer does not have to provide personal use items needed in accomplishing daily activities both on and off the job (ex: hearing aid, eyeglasses, wheelchair, scooter etc.).

Requesting a Reasonable Accommodation

To request a job accommodation please read the Request for Accommodation Process and complete the Request for Accommodation form and return it to Human Resource Services.
