It is the policy of SUNY Brockport that no otherwise qualified person with a disability shall, solely by reason of the disability, be excluded from participation in employment or access to programs of the University. The following statement appears in the Directory of Policy Statements:
SUNY Brockport will not discriminate against any employee, applicant for employment or student, because of physical or mental handicap with regard to any position or program for which that person is qualified. This commitment is applicable in all employment practices including, but not limited to employment upgrading, demotion or transfer, recruitment, layoff or termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation, and selection for training.
In carrying out this policy, the University shall make a good faith effort to reasonably accommodate the physical and/or mental limitations of an employee, applicant for employment or student unless such accommodations would impose undue hardship on the operation of the university.
The University will not deny an employment opportunity to a qualified individual because the individual has a relationship or association with an individual who has a disability.
The University will not knowingly participate in a contractual or other arrangement that subjects an applicant for employment, an employee, or a student with a disability to unlawful discrimination.
The University will not discriminate or retaliate against any individual, whether or not the individual has a disability, as a result of an individual opposing a discriminatory practice, filing a discrimination complaint, or participating in any way in enforcing the Americans with Disabilities Act.
SUNY Brockport will follow the SUNY Complaint Procedures to resolve complaints of unlawful discrimination based on disabilities.
There are no definitions for this policy at this time.
