Workplace Accommodations for CSULB Staff and MPPs
Staff Human Resources is responsible for workplace accommodations for CSU Long Beach staff and non-academic Management Personnel Plan (MPP) employees. Workplace accommodations include religious accommodations and accommodations provided under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
An employee may request a religious accommodation orally or in writing by contacting Staff Human Resources at (562) 985-8259 or via email StaffHR-Accommodations@csulb.edu.
CSU Long Beach (University) is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to its employees and applicants for employment in order to ensure that individuals with disabilities have full access to equal employment opportunities.
As an employer, the University provides reasonable accommodations:
- when an applicant with a disability needs an accommodation in order to be considered for a job;
- when an employee with a disability needs an accommodation to enable them to perform the essential functions of the job or to gain access to the workplace; and
- when an employee with a disability needs an accommodation to participate in equal benefits and privileges of employment.
The process for requesting and obtaining a reasonable employment accommodation is governed by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as amended, and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).
An applicant may request an accommodation orally or in writing by contacting Staff Human Resources at (562) 985-8259 or via email StaffHR-Accommodations@csulb.edu.
Current Staff and MPP employees
When an employee requests an accommodation or there is evidence that an employee may need an accommodation due to a covered disability, the University will engage in the interactive process to explore reasonable accommodation options that will allow the employee to perform the essential job duties of their position.
Request for Reasonable Accommodation
A reasonable workplace accommodation is a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the way in which a job is usually done that enables an individual with a disability, who is otherwise qualified to perform a job, to attain the same level of performance and to enjoy the same benefits and privileges of employment.
An employee may request an accommodation orally or in writing by contacting Staff Human Resources at (562) 985-8259 or via email StaffHR-Accommodations@csulb.edu.
Request for a reasonable accommodation should be made as soon as possible as the process could take some time. Please note that all reasonable accommodations are individualized based on your disability and the nature of your job. It is not always possible for the University to accommodate the employee’s preferred accommodation; however, the University will explore all possible accommodations via the interactive process. The interactive process may take several weeks to complete, depending on how soon we receive your information and the necessary documentation from your physician. Reasonable accommodations approved by Staff Human Resources are reached in consultation with both the employee and the appropriate administrator in their department.
