If you are a member of a State employees Union, contact your shop Steward, who certainly can assist you. If you are not a union member, I suggest you speak to your supervisor or personnel department. You should make it clear that you are asking for this accommodation under the ADA and any applicable similar state statute. Failing all that, contact an employment attorney in your area.
