Acme Company complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and applicable state and local laws providing for nondiscrimination in employment against qualified individuals with disabilities or handicaps. Acme Company also provides reasonable accommodations for such individuals in accordance with these laws. It is Acme Company’s policy to, without limitation:
Qualified individuals with disabilities may make requests for reasonable accommodation so as to enable a qualified individual with a disability to be able to perform the essential functions of their job.
Acme Company has partnered with an outside organization – Disclo – to assist us in processing and handling employee accommodation requests. Disclo is an organization with experience assessing accommodation requests and helping to process accommodation requests and the related information needed from an employee’s healthcare provider in a confidential and appropriate manner.
If an employee wishes to request an accommodation of their disability, the employee should visit https://www.disclo.com/landing/<employer id> to begin.
While Acme Company cannot guarantee that any particular accommodation will be granted, upon receipt of an accommodation request, a designated representative of Disclo will engage in an interactive process with the requesting individual to discuss and identify the precise limitations resulting from the disability and the potential accommodation that Acme Company might make to help overcome those limitations. Per the Company’s policies on Telecommuting and Remote Work, in proper circumstances, remote work may be considered as a reasonable accommodation for an employee with a disability; however, in-person attendance may be an essential job function for certain positions. Employees who request accommodations are expected to cooperate in this interactive process along with Disclo, including providing requested information regarding his or her disability or impairment in a timely manner and/or requesting his or her health care provider to provide such information. All information will be retained in confidence by Disclo and Acme Company to the extent any such information needs to be shared with Acme Company. Retaliation against Employees who present requests for accommodation under this policy is strictly prohibited.
Acme Company, with the assistance of Disclo, will determine the feasibility of the requested accommodation and whether such accommodation(s) may constitute an undue hardship on the Company, considering various factors, including, but not limited to, the nature and cost of the accommodation, the availability of tax credits and deductions, outside funding,Acme Company’s overall financial resources and organization, and the accommodation’s impact on the operation of Acme Company, including its impact on the ability of other Employees to perform their duties and on Acme Company’s ability to conduct business. All Employees, regardless of disability status, are expected to perform the essential functions of their jobs.
