ADA Accommodations for employees

Florida Atlantic University is committed to providing equal access and opportunity to University students, employees, and job applicants with disabilities. As part of this commitment, the University seeks to ensure that no qualified individual with a disability is excluded from participation or denied the benefits of services, programs, or activities of the University, or subjected to discrimination or lack of access by the University.

Qualified individuals with disabilities may be entitled to reasonable accommodations and/or equal access to programs and services.

The Office of Equity and Inclusion serves as a resource for employees who have a qualified disability and are requesting reasonable accommodations to perform essential job functions. Employees who wish to request accommodations may do so by logging on to Workday using their FAU net ID and password. Once logged in, employees may use the search function (located at the top of the Workday home screen and highlighted in blue in the picture below) to type in "Create Request" and search OEI Disability Accommodation Requests (ADA).

The process of requesting an accommodation includes the submission, verification, and review of medical documents. All employees who wish to request an accommodation for a qualified disability should submit the following form as supporting documentation: ADA Request Form. Once the employee has submitted their request on Workday along with appropriate documentation, our ADA Coordinator will begin the interactive process and work with the appropriate parties to discuss possible accommodations.

For inquiries concerning employees, job applicants or other available accommodations, please email accommodate@fau.edu or call the Office of Equity and Inclusion at (561) 297-3004.
