Disability Management: Reasonable Accomodation, Interactive Process

The Disability Management Office is designed to act as a resource to UCR departments with respect to administration of Federal and State disability laws and University policies relating to employees with disabilities. The program provides educational and early intervention services to prevent or minimize the effects of disability in the work place. The Interactive Process is a cooperative dialogue with the employee, management and other Human Resource units regarding workplace disability issues. Our objectives include assisting individuals with disabilities and their departments to explore Reasonable Accommodation, facilitate Return to Work and management of associated disability issues.

The following is a link to a video prepared by the University of California Office of the President with detailed information for staff regarding UC’s responsibility to engage in the Interactive Process to provide reasonable accommodation.
