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.
