Disability Management and Accommodations
The Disability Management department works to reduce the human and fiscal cost of workplace disability by providing the following services:
What is a Reasonable Accommodation?
The University shall attempt to make reasonable accommodations for all known disabilities of a qualified individual with a disability (QID) or any employee who has been injured on the job qualified injured worker (QIW). The decision to offer reasonable accommodation to a QID/QIW shall be made on a case-by-case basis after evaluation of the relevant facts.
Reasonable accommodation may include but are not limited to:
How to request a Reasonable Accommodation (if time off is being requested, you must first contact the LOA Team first by emailing LOATeam@mednet.ucla.edu):
What is the Interactive Process?
Once a request for an accommodation is received, the employee and Disability Management will engage in an interactive process to determine what the individual needs and identify appropriate effective reasonable accommodation(s). The purpose of the interactive process is to determine what, if any, accommodation should be provided. This means that the individual requesting the accommodation must communicate with the appropriate persons throughout the entire process, but particularly where: the specific limitations or barriers are unclear; an effective accommodation is not obvious; the parties are considering different forms of reasonable accommodation; or the current accommodation is no longer effective and another effective accommodation must be identified.
