Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
American’s with Disabilities Act Policy (ADA)
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers to reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with disabilities. It is the policy of Oliver F. Cobb & Associates, LLC (OFCA) to comply with all Federal and state laws concerning the employment of persons with disabilities.
OFCA’s company policy states that it will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities in regard to application procedures, hiring, promotions, discharge, compensation, training and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment.
OFCA will reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with a temporary or long-term disability so they can perform the essentials of a job. All employees seeking accommodation under section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 et seq. or the Americans with Disabilities Act must self-identify with the OFCA Corporate Office. For accommodations, a written requisition must be submitted to this office. It is the responsibility of employees to submit documentation of physical or learning disabilities from qualified and licensed medical or testing personnel.
All employees are required to comply with safety standards. Applicants who pose a direct threat to the health and safety of other individuals in the workplace, where the threat cannot be eliminated by reasonable accommodation, will not be hired.
OFCA current employees who pose a hazard to the health and safety of the other individuals in the workplace will be placed on appropriate leave until an organizational decision has been made in regard to the employee’s immediate employment circumstances.
OFCA’s Human Resources Department is responsible for implementing this policy, including resolution of reasonable accommodation, safety and undue hardship issues.
