ADA Appeal Procedures

The Human Resources Office will provide the employee with a written decision concerning the ADA request after reviewing medical information, work assignments and discussing ADA request arrangements with the appropriate supervisor and considering the employee’s suggestions.

After receiving the Human Resources Office’s decision, the employee will have five working days to appeal the decision in writing to the Vice President of Student Life and Development (320-308-3111). The appeal form must explain why the employee disagrees with the decision of the Human Resources Office.

The Vice President of Student Life and Development shall render a decision on the ADA appeal within ten working days. The employee, supervisor and Human Resources will be informed, in writing, of the decision of the Vice President of Student Life and Development.

If there is a conflict of interest on a particular case, the Vice President of Student Life and Development may recuse himself/herself from the ADA appeal process and another individual may be delegated with the responsibility. Another administrator may be delegated with the responsibility to hear ADA appeals if the Vice President of Student Life and Development is unavailable to attend to appeal matters.

If the individual believes the decision is based on illegal discriminatory reasons, then they may file a complaint with the Affirmative Action Office.
