The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) as amended by the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, hereafter (ADAAA), requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified employees and applicants with disabilities; unless such accommodation would pose an undue hardship (e.g. it is too costly, too extensive, too substantial, or too disruptive). In general, the applicant or employee with a disability is responsible for letting Metra know that an accommodation is needed in order for him/her to participate in the application process, to perform essential job functions, or to receive equal benefits and privileges of employment. Metra has established the Reasonable Accommodation Committee (RAC) to review all accommodation requests.
Any applicant or employee may request an accommodation to perform the essential functions of his/her job because of a physical or mental disability by completing the appropriate Reasonable Accommodation Disability Declaration Form and the Reasonable Accommodation Medical Release of Information Form below.
If you have any questions regarding reasonable accommodations please contact Countess P. Cary, Chairperson, Metra/Reasonable Accommodation Committee at (312) 322-8934 or email@example.com.
