Disability Accommodation Request
This policy applies to employees and applicants for employment.

To request accommodations in the workplace due to a disability, employees should speak to their supervisor or Lori Sykes, Compliance and Ethics Manager. Employees will be asked to submit a completed "Request Form for Employee Disability - Related Accommodations," and documentation of the disability.
Access the "Request Form for Employee Disability - Related Accommodations" on the Human Resources web site in the employment section of the forms page.
