Americans With Disabilities Act
The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibits discrimination against individuals
with disabilities in employment, public services, public accommodations, and telecommunications.
Employees may self-identify any qualified disability as defined under ADA for which
assistance is needed in carrying out their assigned duties.
Individuals with disabilities are defined under ADA as persons who either have or
are regarded as having a record of a physical or mental impairment that substantially
limits one or more major life activities. Southern Polytechnic State University will
make every effort possible to accommodate any employee needing assistance within the
definitions of the law.
