Request an Employment Accommodation

Policy Statement: 

Central Connecticut State University does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the administration of, or access to, its programs, services or activities, including employment.  Under this policy, a person with a disability is defined as “a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, has a record of such impairment, is regarded as having such impairment, or falls within one or more of the disabling conditions protected by the state constitution and statutes.”

Policy Regarding Persons with Disabilities

Any request for an employment related accommodation shall be directed to and guided by CCSU Human Resources.  CCSU recognizes that the need for a reasonable employment accommodation can arise from many different needs.

Accommodations Related to a Worker’s Compensation Injury

Employment accommodations related to a Worker’s Compensation Injury should be directed to CCSU Human Resources Worker’s Compensation designee.  Under Federal and State Worker’s Compensation laws, injured employees may be entitled to additional benefits and accommodations.  Additionally, employees are encouraged to speak with their Worker’s Compensation Benefits Adjuster.  For more information regarding the State of Connecticut Worker’s Compensation program, please visit DAS Worker’s Compensation,  Worker’s Compensation Commission, or contact the State of Connecticut’s Worker’s Compensation Third Party Administrator, Gallagher Bassett Services, Inc., at (866) 422-7622.

 

Student Employment Accommodation Requests

Student employment accommodation requests should be directed to the  Office of Student Disability Services .  Due to the nature of student employment on campus, CCSU values the learning experience afforded to students while employed on campus. CCSU believes that student employees are students first.  Thus, student employment is not considered traditional employment; whereas, student employees may be entitled to additional benefits and reasonable accommodations.

 

Employees Returning From an Approved Medical Leave of Absence

For permanent employees who are returning from an approved medical leave of absence and who are seeking a temporary employment accommodation, requests should be directed to CCSU Human Resources Leave Benefit designee.  Employees returning from an approved medical leave of absence who are unable to perform one or more job duties may be entitled to a reasonable temporary workplace accommodation.  A reasonable accommodation may include remaining out on medical leave.

 

Job Applicants

Job applicants with disabilities, as defined above, may request a reasonable employment accommodation to receive full and equal opportunities in applying for and seeking employment with Central Connecticut State University.  All requests should be directed to CCSU Human Resources Employment Recruiter.  Job Applicants are discouraged from speaking about their needs for an accommodation with any member of the Search Committee.  CCSU Human Resources is committed to ensuring all job applicants are afforded an equal and objective opportunity to fully participate in the application, review and selection process. 

 

Active Full Time and Part Time Employees

Both full-time and part-time employees with disabilities, as defined above, may request a reasonable employment accommodation to receive full and equal opportunities in employment at Central Connecticut State University.
