Reasonable Accommodation

The State of New York is committed to assuring equal opportunity for persons with disabilities. To this end, it is the State's policy to provide reasonable accommodation in all its programs and services. Reasonable accommodation applies to physical accessibility of programs and services as well as the development of policy to ensure that all people can take part in, and benefit from, State programs and services. Reasonable accommodation also applies to providing auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication with all persons.

Additionally, it is the State's policy to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with a disability to enable them to perform the essential functions of their job, whether they are applying for employment or already employed by the State. The policy applies to all employment practices and actions including recruitment, job application, examination and testing, hiring, training, compensation, transfer and reassignment, and promotions. These policies are based on the New York State Human Rights Law, Sections 503/504 of the Federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and all applicable Executive Orders and Memoranda.

If you have any questions regarding a reasonable accommodation that relates to a Civil Service examination in the Albany area, please call 518-457-2487. Outside of the Albany area, call toll free at 1-877-697-5627. For TDD services, call NY Relay at 711 (requires a fee) or 1-800-662-1220.

If you have any questions regarding a reasonable accommodation for any other employment related issues, please call 518-473-4306.
