Procedure:


A. Individuals with DisabilitiesPRO is committed to complying with the Americans with Disabilities Act and applicable state and local laws prohibiting discrimination in employment against qualified individuals with disabilities. PRO also endeavors to provide reasonable accommodation for such individuals who are otherwise able to perform the essential functions of their job in accordance with these laws.

It is PRO’s policy to, without limitation:

  • Ensure that qualified individuals with disabilities are treated in a nondiscriminatory manner in the pre-employment process and that employees with disabilities are treated in a nondiscriminatory manner in all terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.
  • Keep all medical-related information confidential in accordance with the requirements of the ADA and retain such information in separate confidential files.

B. Procedure for Requesting an Accommodation

Qualified individuals with disabilities who are otherwise able to perform the essential functions of their job may make requests for reasonable accommodation to PRO’s CEO. On receipt of an accommodation request, the CEO will meet with the requesting individual to discuss and identify the precise limitations resulting from the disability and the potential accommodation that PRO might make to help overcome those limitations.

Reasonable accommodations may include any action which enables a qualified individual with a disability to perform the essential functions of his or her position but which does not result in an undue hardship to PRO or pose a threat to the health and safety of the employee or coworkers.

The CEO and appropriate management representatives identified as having a need to know, will determine the feasibility of the requested accommodation. The CEO will inform the employee of PRO’s decision on the accommodation request or on how to make the accommodation.
