The Employment Accommodations Resource Center (EARC) is San José State University’s administrative program charged with collecting confidential medical and professional verification of a qualified employee’s disability to determine reasonable and appropriate employment accommodations.  

Employees requesting employment accommodations due to a disability must meet the criteria and requirements established under the California Fair Employment Housing Act (FEHA) as well as  Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The EARC works closely with Human Resources and Faculty Affairs and will, on a case-by-case basis, consult with an employee’s primary physician, or other professional to determine and prescribe reasonable and appropriate employment accommodations.
