Americans with Disabilities Act

Telecommuting can be helpful in accommodating employees with a disability, such as those covered by the ADA or other related laws, depending on the specifics of the employee’s role and job responsibilities. Employees who wish to request a reasonable accommodation (such as a telecommuting arrangement) must register with the Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities (RCPD) and submit a formal request.  Information regarding the reasonable accommodation process and other disability resources can be found on the RCPD website at www.rcpd.msu.edu.
