The Employment Accommodations Resource Center (EARC) is San José State University’s independent administrative program charged with collecting confidential medical and professional verification of a qualified employee’s disability to determine and prescribe 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 the Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended by the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA).

On a case-by-case basis, the EARC works closely with Human Resources and Faculty Affairs or other pertinent professional(s), as needed, to determine and prescribe reasonable and appropriate employment accommodations.
