Questions regarding workplace accommodations should be directed to central Human Resources (HR) at 513-556-6381.
The central HR office coordinates reasonable accommodations for faculty and staff. A reasonable accommodation is a reasonable modification or adjustment to the work environment that enables a qualified person with a disability to perform the essential functions of his/her job. Reasonable accommodation is determined based on individual analysis in an interactive process.
To request a reasonable accommodation, an individual should self-disclose his/her request to central HR. This can be done, via phone (513-556-6381) or by email to LOAADM@uc.edu. If an employee's disability and/or need for accommodation is not obvious and/or already known, Central HR will request that the employee provide supporting documentation of his/her disability as needed to implement the most appropriate accommodations strategies. A disability is obvious if it is clearly visible. A disability is already known if the employee has previously provided sufficient medical information to establish his/her disability.
In order to be eligible for consideration, individuals for whom documentation substantiating disability is not already on file will be asked to provide supporting documentation of their disability as needed to implement the most appropriate accommodation strategies.
