Tell us if you have been denied accommodations

Help us to track denials and responses to PSC members’ requests for accommodations in the winter and spring of 2021-2022.

The primary purpose of this form is to identify patterns and problem areas for potential follow up. Though a simple denial of a request to work remotely is not grievable under most circumstances, you should contact your grievance counselor if you believe management’s denial of your request may have violated our contract with CUNY or your legal rights.

ADA Reasonable Accommodation: Employees who have a "disability" related to COVID-19 may be eligible for a reasonable accommodation (e.g., to work a flexible schedule or remotely) under the Americans with Disabilities Act. A "disability" is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity, or a history or perception of such a disability. Certain underlying health issues may put a person at higher risk of developing a COVID-related disability. Evolving information regarding high-risk categories can be found on the CDC website.

General Accommodation: Employees who have concerns about returning to work onsite for other non-disability reasons (e.g., childcare, health of others in their household, or their own health issues that may not rise to the level of an ADA "disability") may be eligible for other options (e.g., FMLA, leaves of absence, use of annual leave, or a Flexible Work Agreement). Such non-disability accommodation requests are also known as General Accommodation requests. You may make a General Accommodation request to your direct supervisor using the Remote Work Agreement without first going to HR.

To the best of your recollection, tell us the date, month and year.
