Any employee or applicant needing accommodations is able to receive accommodations.
The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities and requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to help those with disabilities to perform their jobs. As defined by the ADAAA, a person with a serious physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity has a disability. An employee's disability must be verified by the employee's doctor and, in some cases, confirmed by a doctor chosen by the school system.
FCPS complies with the ADAAA and provides reasonable accommodation to those who need it. Any employee who believes that he or she has a disability and needs special assistance to perform his or her job should contact the Office of Equity and Employee Relations (EER). All communications are confidential.
To help us determine whether your medical condition constitutes a disability as defined by the ADAAA and, if so, whether reasonable workplace accommodations can be provided, FCPS requires verification of your medical condition by a doctor. Therefore, it is important that you and your physician complete the attached form and return it to the Office of Equity and Employee Relations, Department of Human Resources, 8115 Gatehouse Road, Suite 2100, Falls
Church, VA 22042. You may fax the completed form to 571-423-5051.
Also, any employee or applicant needing accommodations, such as a sign language interpreter or vision enhancement equipment, should contact EER.
