Reasonable Accommodation

Skidmore College is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the New York State Human Rights Law (NYHRL), and all applicable laws providing nondiscrimination in employment against qualified individuals with disabilities. Skidmore will work with Employees who have disabilities to develop reasonable accommodations that allow an individual the opportunity to perform the essential functions of his or her job in a safe and efficient manner.  Employees are encouraged to inform their Supervisor of any physical or mental disability and to suggest appropriate methods of reasonable accommodation. Volunteering this information will not subject an Employee to any adverse treatment or penalty. All information concerning disabilities will be considered confidential and will be released only in accordance with the requirements of the ADA and the NYHRL.
