The Interactive Process

In accordance with the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), American River College will engage in the interactive process with qualified employees with disabilities to determine if they can perform the essential functions of their jobs with or without reasonable accommodations.

Employees with disabilities should contact their ADA/504 compliance officer.

504 Coordinator

The interactive process is a discussion between the employee and the district or college to determine reasonable accommodations. This process may include the employee's equity representative, supervisor, or other relevant parties. The district/college ultimately determines if an accommodation is reasonable.

Workers' Compensation

If you have been injured while performing the functions of your job, then please contact American River College's ADA officer immediately.

Workers' compensation laws may provide employees who have been injured on the job with the following:

  • Medical treatment and vocational rehabilitation
  • Compensation for job-related temporary and permanent disability
  • Protection from retaliation for exercising workers' compensation rights

Service Animals

Any employee with a disability who needs a service animal to perform the essential functions of their job may use a service animal on district and college property.
