Persons with Disabilities

Retrieved from Employee Policy Manual, p.1

The College does not discriminate against qualified employees or job applicants because of their physical or mental disabilities, and it complies fully with all laws pertaining to individuals with disabilities.

Accordingly, the College is prepared to make reasonable job accommodations for disabled employees or applicants provided that the person being accommodated is able to do the assigned job safely and competently, and that making the accommodation does not impose a hardship on FIT. Those seeking job accommodations may be called upon to document their needs. For more information on accommodation, contact Eric Odin, acting vice president for Human Resource Management and Labor Relations, at 7-3650.

If you think you have been discriminated against because of a disability, you should report the matter without delay. You can take your complaint to your supervisor; to the Affirmative Action Officer and Title IX Coordinator; to the Vice President for Human Resource Management and Labor Relations; to any vice president or dean; to any department director or chair; or to the Office of the General Counsel.

The College forbids retaliation in any form against persons making good-faith complaints of job discrimination. However, intentionally false complaints violate this policy and may lead to disciplinary action.
