Disabilities or ADA Policy

Sample Policy #1


Disability Accommodation



The library is committed to complying fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and ensuring equal opportunity in employment for qualified persons with physical or mental disabilities. All employment practices and activities are conducted on a non-discriminatory basis.
Hiring procedures provide persons with disabilities meaningful employment opportunities. Pre-employment inquiries are made only regarding an applicant’s ability to perform the essential functions of the position.
The library will make reasonable accommodation(s) to the known physical or mental limitations of qualified applicants or employees with disabilities to enable them to perform the essential job duties, unless such accommodation(s) would impose an undue hardship on the operation of the library.
Qualified individuals with disabilities are entitled to equal pay and other forms of compensation (or changes in compensation) as well as in job assignments, classifications, organizational structures, and position descriptions. Leave of all types will be available to all employees on an equal basis.
The library is also committed to not discriminating against any qualified employees or applicants because they are related to or associated with a person with a disability. The library will follow any state or local law that provides individuals with disabilities greater protection than the ADA.
This policy is neither exhaustive nor exclusive. The library is committed to taking all other actions necessary to ensure equal employment opportunity for persons with disabilities in accordance with the ADA and all other applicable federal, state, and local laws.
