The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination (NJLAD) prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability. In this regard, the university provides reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities unless the accommodation would impose an undue hardship.
The Office of Employment Equity (OEE) is responsible for overseeing and coordinating requests for accommodation received from individuals with disabilities with regard to staff positions. OEE’s services include consulting on compliance with applicable laws and providing resources. For example, OEE can advise a supervisor on how to respond to a request for accommodation (e.g., engaging in the informal, interactive process to clarify what the individual needs). OEE has established Guidelines for Disability Accommodations and forms for the use of staff employees when making a request for accommodation.
