If the employee provides documentation that they are in a CDC increased risk group, HR will work with Deans and administrative unit heads (or their designees) to determine what adjustments may be made, or if another approach is more appropriate.
The form to use in applying for an adjustment to one’s work arrangement based on increased risk is found here.
Some conditions included in the CDC risk groups for COVID-19 might be considered disabilities under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Further information about the University’s reasonable accommodation process for employees can be found here.
Some employees may have concerns about returning to campus that do not fall under the specific conditions included in the CDC increased risk groups. Staff and Faculty with concerns about returning to campus that are not included in the CDC guidelines are asked to complete and submit this form. When the form is accessed, proceed to the “Other” box at the end and provide details about the situation. After we receive this information, we will work with the employee’s unit to determine whether or not there are alternative steps to be taken.
Please note: Workplace adjustment request forms will only be accessible to and reviewed by a limited number of qualified professionals in Human Resources. The details of the adjustment request, and any personal medical information, will be maintained separate from employee files. No personal medical information will be shared with deans or administrative unit heads or their designees. HR will provide the dean or administrative unit head with only the names of those staff members requesting an adjustment and the adjustment requested.
