Reasonable Accommodation and EEO

Reasonable Accommodation Statement

Our class specifications and job announcements generally describe the duties, responsibilities, and requirements characteristic of the position(s) within this job class.  The duties, responsibilities, and requirements of a particular position within this class may vary from the duties of other positions within the class.

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Los Angeles Community College District provides reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with covered disabilities on a case-by-case basis throughout the application, examination, and hiring processes and throughout employment.  If in doubt about your ability to perform the duties and responsibilities of a position or possession of any other requirement noted in a class specification or job announcement, you should always apply for a position and request reasonable accommodation at the appropriate time.

Reasonable Accommodation in the Examination Process 

Individuals protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) may request, orally or in writing, an accommodation in the examination process. Documentation of the need for accommodation is required solely for the purpose of establishing that the applicant has an ADA disability and that the disability necessitates a reasonable accommodation. Typically, a letter from an appropriate health care or rehabilitation professional which establishes that the applicant has an ADA qualifying disability, identifies the functional limitations as they relate to the testing situation, and recommends/suggests the appropriate accommodation is sufficient.

In order for appropriate arrangements to be made at the testing site, a request for accommodation and required documentation must be received by the Examiner of Record at least 3 days prior to the administration of the test.
