Integrated Disability and Absence Management (IDAM)

Welcome! The Integrated Disability and Absence Management (IDAM) Office is a resource to Berkeley Lab employees with respect to the administration of Federal and State Disability Laws and University/DOE policies relating to employee leave and employees with disabilities.

This includes, but is not limited to, a personal injury, surgery, illness, pregnancy, parental leave for the birth, adoption or foster care placement of a child, and leaves to care for a family member (spouse, child, or parent) with a serious medical health condition.
  • Medical leaves related to an injury or illness sustained at or because of work (Workers’ Compensation).
