Reasonable Accommodations for Applying/Recruitment

Reasonable accommodations are adjustments made to remove workplace obstacles for qualified individuals with disabilities to apply for and perform their jobs.

Applicants who qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, may be eligible for a reasonable accommodation in Phoenix House’s application and selection process. A request for an accommodation will not affect opportunities for employment within Phoenix House.

Arrangements can be made if you have a disability that requires an accommodation for completing an application form, interviewing or any part of the employment process. Requesting accommodations, in writing or verbally, can be initiated by a Phoenix House employee, qualified applicant, or by someone acting on that person’s behalf. Either call 718-222-6630 ; send an email to: Recruitment@phoenixhouse.org; or, send letter to Recruitment & Talent Management, 50 Jay St., Brooklyn, NY 11201. Note: please do not use these contacts to follow-up on job inquiries.

Provide the name of the qualified applicant needing accommodation, a phone number, email address or other means of contact, and a brief description of the nature of the requested accommodation. A representative from the Phoenix House Human Resources Staff will be in contact to discuss the request.

A reasonable accommodation for a qualified applicant to participate in the application/recruitment process should be provided as soon as possible. If the request is not feasible (as it causes undue hardship on the organization) the applicant should be advised of this, and of alternative means to apply if possible.
