Employees With Disabilities
Assistance Program Accepting Requests

The Employees With Disabilities Assistance Program, administered on the campus through the Office of Equity and Diversity, will be funded for 2005-06. Employees eligible for assistance are those with a physical or mental condition which impairs a major life activity, as defined by The Americans with Disabilities Act and AB2222.

The program allows for employees to request auxiliary aid/adaptive equipment which reasonably accommodates their physical or mental limitations.

Qualified employees may request an allocation for auxiliary aid to employ assistants to perform job duties limited by their disability or medical condition. Examples of job duties which might be impaired are manual operations (dexterity), reading (print character differentiation), conducting discussions (hearing) and campus facilities utilization (mobility).

Adaptive equipment is considered non-standard, specialized equipment/devices that enable qualified employees to perform essential job duties either more effectively or more efficiently. Examples include large-character computer monitors (sight), portable telecommunications devices (hearing), print magnifiers (sight), audio-receivers (hearing) and audio-amplifiers (speaking).

Equipment and services which administrative divisions/colleges normally and routinely provide to all employees may not be funded under this program.

Requests for the next academic year are now being accepted for consideration. If you are interested and eligible to benefit from this program, contact the Office of Equity and Diversity at 562/985-8490 or by email at jreyes@csulb.edu before Friday, July 1.
