Onboarding and Integration Guides

  • EOSD Integration Guide for Students : The Public Service Commission developed this guide specifically for new student employees participating in the Employment Opportunity for Students with Disabilities support initiative.

Workplace Accommodations

Your manager is here to help! It is important to let your manager know throughout your employment if you require any accommodations, adaptive tools, or support measures to help you succeed during your employment.

This can include having a discussion with your manager about any accommodation needs, confirming your workstation is properly set up, and confirming that your accommodation needs have been met.

It is your responsibility to let your manager know if your needs have changed and if additional support is required.

If you have a copy of your educational institution’s Learning Intervention Plan, which contains any physical, technological and/or learning accommodation requirements established by your learning institution, share this with your manager as it may facilitate your workplace accommodation.
