Documentation

The ORAA Reasonable Accommodations Manager may need to obtain information to determine if an individual’s impairment is a “disability” pursuant to the Rehabilitation Act or to determine an appropriate accommodation. Where documentation is needed, the ORAA Reasonable Accommodations Manager will work with the applicant to obtain it.

If clarification or additional information is needed, the ORAA may request review of the medical documentation by the Agency’s Occupational Health, Environmental & Safety Services (OHESS), medical staff or another medical professional (at the Agency’s expense) if consent is provided by the applicant.

The ORAA Reasonable Accommodations Manager or Agency medical staff may also give the applicant a list of questions to give to the health care provider to answer or contact the medical provider directly, if consent is provided by the applicant.
