Section - Employee Handbook Small Business
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA)



On September 25, 2008, the President signed the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 ("ADA Amendments Act" or "Act"). The Act emphasizes that the definition of disability should be construed in favor of broad coverage of individuals to the maximum extent permitted by the terms of the ADA*

Basically the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act, known as the ADAAA, are federal laws that prohibit employers with 15 or more employees from discriminating against any applicants and individuals with disabilities and that when needed provide reasonable accommodations to applicants as well as staff members of the organization who are qualified for a job, with or without reasonable accommodations, so that they may perform the essential tasks of the position as defined in the JD (Job Description).

It is the officially stated policy of “Insert Your Business Name Here” to comply with all federal, state and local laws in the United States of America and beyond in all the countries where the company operate concerning the employment of persons with disabilities and to act in accordance with regulations and guidance issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) or any other state, federal or local law in which ever country “Insert Your Business Name Here”. Has its offices or any other ancillary facilities. Furthermore, it is the company’s policy not to discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities in regard to application procedures, recruitment, promotions, discharge, compensation, training or other terms, conditions and privileges of employment with “Insert Your Business Name Here”.

The company will strive to be reasonably accommodative with regards to duly qualified individuals with a disability/disabilities so that they may perform the essential functions of their job unless doing so causes a direct threat to these individuals or others in the workplace and the threat cannot be eliminated by reasonable accommodation and/or if the accommodation creates an undue hardship to “Insert Your Business Name Here”. Should staff members have any further queries regarding our disability policy please feel free to contact management with any questions or requests for accommodation.

While we do our level best to ensure that we are able to comply to all state and federal regulations while striving to ensure greater employment opportunities to people with disabilities as par our own polices as well. Sometimes it’s not possible to accommodate all such applicants due to circumstances beyond our control.
