OFCCP Develops a Reasonable Accommodation Pocket Card

OFCCP created a new “Requesting a Reasonable Accommodation” pocket card. The pocket card helps applicants, employees and other interested parties understand the process for requesting a reasonable accommodation. The card uses simple language and answers these four common questions about seeking a reasonable accommodation:

• What is a reasonable accommodation?

• How do I request a reasonable accommodation?

• What do I need to tell my employer?

• What happens after the request is made?

The pocket card is a part of OFCCP’s continuing outreach and education efforts to stakeholders regarding their rights under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act and is available on OFCCP’s Web site at (www.dol.gov/ofccp). Copies may be attained by contacting OFCCP’s Help Desk at 1-800-397-6251.

    I received this info. through a DOL email and called the OFCCP Help Desk today (1-800-397-6251) to order cards. That phone number got me a fax line (the high-pitched tone), so I called a different OFCCP phone number to let them know.

    If you download the card, you get a lot of little card graphics in separate pdf files, one per page. Not too practical for busy employers!

    Hi Karin! Thank you for sharing your feedback. Sorry to read about the format issue, but glad you reached out to the OFCCP. If we see that they release an updated version, we’ll let you know. Or, if you see revised version, please let us know.
