Employee Accommodations

In compliance with the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation act, Mount Holyoke is committed to providing an equal opportunity workplace where all employees can successfully perform their job tasks regardless of ability. To that end, the College will provide reasonable accommodations to employees with documented disabilities. Human Resources is the only designated office at the College for employees to voluntarily disclose a disability, submit appropriate documentation for verification, and request accommodations. Human Resources engages employees in an interactive process to determine reasonable accommodations and ensure an individualized accommodation process.

Services Offered

  • Reasonable workplace accommodations. Examples could include: identifying accessible parking, acquiring a standing desk, providing screen reader software, adjusting schedules so employees with chronic medical conditions can attend medical appointments and complete their work at alternative times or locations.
  • Assistive technology consultation and support.
  • Collaboration with campus offices to implement accommodations.
  • Participation in college initiatives to increase campus accessibility.

To begin the application process, please ask your physician to complete  the Clinician Disability Form which can be found under “Accommodations” on the Human Resources info site on the my.mtholyoke.edu portal.
