University Policy

Gonzaga University Policy regarding workplace accommodations From the Employee Handbook

Disability Accommodation: It is the University's intention to treat employees who become disabled during their employment in a fundamentally fair and non-discriminatory manner. Consistent with University policy and applicable state and federal laws, such as the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Washington State Law Against Discrimination (RCW 49.60), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the University has developed processes for considering reasonable accommodations for employees whose ability to perform their jobs is affected by physical and/or mental illness, conditions, or injuries. The University's Equal Opportunity Officer works with disabled employees, their supervisors, and medical personnel when appropriate to evaluate each situation. Medical verification may be required.
