Supporting People with Disabilities

Did you know that MDA can help you focus on your ABILITY!

Many of us have disabilities and many of us think "I don't want my employer to know about My DisABILITY," but often your employer - especially MDA - can help!

MDA is compliant with the reasonable accommodation requirements of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. This means that MDA offers "Reasonable Accommodation" for employees who have medical conditions covered by the Rehabilitation Act.

MDA provides Reasonable Accommodation when:
• An employee with a disability needs an accommodation to perform the essential functions of the job or to gain access to the workplace.
• An employee with a disability needs an accommodation to enjoy equal access to benefits and privileges of employment (e.g., details, training, office-sponsored events).
• An applicant with a disability needs an accommodation to have an equal opportunity to compete for a job.

Need Reasonable Accommodation?

If you believe that you are a qualified person with a disability and you need a reasonable accommodation to perform the essential functions of your position, contact ReasonableAccommodation@mda.mil, or your supervisor. The MER team, your supervisor, and the rest of the MDA interactive process team will work together to identify possible reasonable accommodations.
