Approved: 7/5/2012
Approved By: President's Staff
Category: 6 - HUMAN RESOURCES
Section: 01 - EMPLOYMENT
Policy: 001 - Hiring and Equal Employment Opportunity

CCBC is committed to complying fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and ensuring equal opportunity in employment for qualified persons with disabilities. All employment practices and activities are conducted on a non-discriminatory basis.

Reasonable accommodation is available to all disabled employees, where their disability affects the performance of job functions. All employment decisions are based on the merits of the situation in accordance with defined criteria, not the disability of the individual.

Hiring procedures have been reviewed and provide persons with disabilities meaningful employment opportunities. Upon request, job applications are available in alternative, accessible formats, as is assistance in completing the application. Pre-employment inquiries are made only regarding an applicant's ability to perform the duties of the position.

Post-offer medical examinations (physician as designated by CCBC) are required only for those positions in which there is a bona fide job-related physical requirement. They are required of all persons only after conditional job offers have been extended in the identified job categories. Medical records will be kept separate and confidential.

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, position descriptions, lines of progression and seniority lists. Leave of all types will be available to all employees on an equal basis.

CCBC is also committed to providing equal opportunity for qualified employees or applicants who may be related to or associated with a person with a disability. CCBC will follow any applicable state or local law that provides individuals with disabilities greater protection than the ADA.

This policy is neither exhaustive nor exclusive. CCBC 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.

All questions in regards to this policy should be directed to the Human Resources department.
