I understand that if my release includes workplace restrictions related to my medical condition, it must reach my supervisor prior to my return to work date. I understand
that my return to work date may be delayed so that my department can evaluate any identified restrictions. If restrictions are substantially limiting, are expected to
continue longer than 3 months or are considered permanent, your return release will be referred to the Office of Institutional Equity (OIE) for review under the ADAAA
(Americans with Disabilities Act as amended).
