Requesting Accommodations - (Including disability, injury, or diagnosed health conditions)

UW-Eau Claire and UW-Eau Claire – Barron County follow UW System Policy, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA).

Disability: A physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the person's major life activities; a history of such an impairment; or being regarded as having such an impairment.

COVID-19 related accommodations for Instructional Staff (excerpt from UWEC Return-to-Work Plan)

Faculty and staff members who have a physical and/or mental health condition that may be exacerbated by being on campus during a pandemic,
should complete the appropriate ADA Accommodation e-form and/or family and/or medical leave (FLMA) paperwork. If telework or distance education cannot be approved given the existing guidelines, alternative accommodations, such as a leave of absence or personal protective equipment, will be evaluated as part of the accommodation process.

Concerns about transmitting the virus to people with whom the faculty or staff member is in close contact, or concerns about being infected with
COVID-19 without an underlying physical and/or mental health condition, are not governed by the standard disability request and/or family and/or medical leave (FMLA). Those concerns will be handled by Academic Affairs in consultation with the department chair and college dean.

COVID-19 related accommodations for Non-Instructional Staff (excerpt from UWEC Return-to-Work Plan)

If accommodations can be easily permitted for non-instructional work, unit leaders may approve accommodations for a given class of workers for
the duration of the pandemic. This includes any non-instructional duties for faculty or instructional staff. Arrangements should be reviewed every
semester.

Staff members for whom telework has not been approved but who have a physical and/or mental condition that may be exacerbated by being on campus during a pandemic, should complete the appropriate ADA Accommodation e-form and/or family and/or medical leave (FMLA) paperwork. If telework cannot be approved given existing guidelines, alternative accommodations, such as a leave of absence or personal protective equipment, will be evaluated as part of the accommodation process.

Concerns about transmitting the virus to people with whom the faculty or staff member is in close contact, or concerns about being infected with
COVID-19 without an underlying physical and/or mental condition, are not governed by the standard disability request and/or family and/or medical
leave (FMLA). Those concerns should be handled according to the needs of the operating unit as defined by the division head.

Family Medical Leave (FMLA)

The federal Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Wisconsin Family and Medical Leave Act (WFMLA) provide you with the right to take job-protected leave with continued medical benefits when you need time off from work to care for yourself or a family member who is seriously ill, to care for a newborn or newly adopted child, or to attend to the affairs of a family member who is called to active duty in the military.
