Employment Accommodations

Appalachian State University is committed to  equal opportunity in all aspects of employment for qualified employees (EHRA, SHRA, Faculty, etc.) with disabilities. Employees who need reasonable workplace accommodations on the basis of a disability in order to complete the essential functions of their job or have access the benefits of employment must complete the request process outlined below.  

Title I of the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination in employment and requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations for “qualified employees with disabilities.” Accommodations do not remove functions which are essential to a job, but rather provide an equal opportunity for an employee to complete them.
