Requesting a Reasonable Accommodation - Introduction

Reasonable Accomodations
 

Marketing and Regulatory Programs is committed to the recruitment, hiring, and retaining qualified persons with disabilities. Along with the Department as a whole, MRP strives to be a model employer of persons with disabilities and strives to promote a workplace that provides reasonable accommodations to remove workplace barriers that would prevent:

  1. disabled individuals from participating in the application process for Federal employment,
  2. disabled employees from performing essential job functions, and
  3. disabled employees from enjoying the same benefits and privileges of employment as non-disabled employees.

 

In response to Executive Order 13164, issued in 2000, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued Departmental Manual DM-4300-2 entitled Reasonable Accommodations Procedures, http://www.ocio.usda.gov/directives/doc/DM4300-002.pdf , which sets forth the procedures to be used by employees, applicants, and others for requesting reasonable accommodations under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.

This program also processes requests for disability parking. Information about how to request disability parking can be found at www.wasc.usda.gov.
