Sec. § 284.379
Separation or disability retirement of employee with disability.

In the employment of a person with a disability in the state service, continued efforts must be made to retain the person by making reasonable accommodations that enable the person to perform the essential functions of his or her current position and to enjoy the benefits and privileges of the position. An appointing authority shall consider separation or disability retirement if:


An employee can no longer perform the essential functions of the position with or without reasonable accommodations; and


Without undue hardship, as that term is defined pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12101 et seq., the employee cannot be appointed to a position for which a vacancy exists and for which the employee is qualified at or below the grade of the employee’s current position.
