Requests for Accommodation
Consistent with its responsibilities under applicable Federal disability nondiscrimination laws, its mission, and the additional emphasis on the employment of individuals with disabilities as reflected in Executive Order 13548 (issued July 26, 2010), the Division of Energy Employees Occupational Illness Compensation (DEEOIC) has issued EEOICPA Bulletin 14-03, Handling Requests for Communication Assistance, Accommodations, and Modifications under the Federal Disability Nondiscrimination Law by Claimants and Others in the DEEOIC Adjudicatory Process.
