Accommodations

Reasonable Accommodations for Employees with Disabilities

It is the policy of the Colleges to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified individuals with a disability who are employees or applicants for employment. The Colleges are committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the New York State Human Rights Law (NYHRL), and all applicable laws prohibiting discrimination in employment against qualified individuals with disabilities. The Colleges will reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with known disabilities unless doing so would result in undue hardship to the Colleges. The interactive process of identifying a reasonable accommodation begins when an employee or applicant discloses a disability, provides documentation, and requests an accommodation. Volunteering information about a disability will not subject an employee or applicant to any adverse treatment or penalty. All information concerning disabilities will be considered confidential and will be released only in accordance with the ADA and the NYHRL.

To request an accommodation please complete the accommodation request form and return it to Human Resources.

Deb Drain, Director of Human Resources also serves as the Colleges ADA/504 Compliance Coordinator and can be reached at drain@hws.edu or (315) 781-3313.
