Job applicants may make requests for reasonable accommodation to the individual identified in the appropriate vacancy announcement as the point of contact for reasonable accommodations.
The United States Attorney’s Office for the Northern District of Alabama has designated Donzella Walton, (205) 244-2001, as Accommodation Coordinator, and her name will be listed onall vacancy announcements for professional support staff positions. Attorneys seeking employment with the District may contact Ms. Walton directly for information regarding a request for reasonable accommodation. Reasonable accommodations for job applicants may include providing an accessible location for job interviews, sign language interpreters, other assistive devices, and other accommodations needed in the application process.
