If you are looking for employment with the State of California through the LEAP Program and you already understand how the program works, select LEAP examinations or search for vacancies. To learn more about this program see the LEAP section below.
If you have a disability and need special arrangements for an job examination or for a LEAP Readiness Evaluation through the California Department of Human Resources, contact the Examinations Unit at (866) 844-8671, or via the California Relay Service for the Deaf or Hard of Hearing at (800) 735-2929 from TTY Phones, or at (800) 735-2922 from voice phones.
If you need special arrangements for an examination conducted by another department, or if you need a reasonable accommodation to perform the essential functions of your state job, contact the Reasonable Accommodation Coordinator for the appropriate department. If there is no RA Coordinator listed, contact the department EEO Officer. Each department is required by federal and state laws to provide Reasonable Accommodation (RA) when a job applicant or employee with a disability needs assistance in order to complete a selection process, perform the essential functions of a job, complete required training, or benefit from an employer-sponsored events. The purpose of the accommodation is to allow the person with the disability to compete or perform on as equal a basis as possible with persons without disabilities. Employers are obligated to provide accommodation unless to do so would cause them undue hardship.
Reasonable Accommodation Coordinators or other state employee assisting with the Reasonable Accommodation process may find these resources helpful. There are many types of accommodation and no one accommodation will be appropriate for all individuals with a disability.
