    As a government contractor subject to Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, SUNY Plattsburgh is taking affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified Handicapped Workers.  Handicapped Workers should inform the Affirmative Action Office of such condition.  This information is voluntary.  Failure to provide it will not subject Handicapped Workers to any penalty.  However, in order to assure proper placement of all employees, it is requested that Handicapped Workers submit an answer to the following to the Affirmative Action Officer.

    Please state whether you have had a physical or mental handicap which could create a hazard to you or others or which might require on-the-job accommodation.  If there are any positions for which you should not be considered, or job duties you cannot perform because of a physical or mental handicap, please describe.

    Information obtained concerning Handicapped Workers shall be kept confidential except that supervisors and administrators may be informed of the restrictions on the work or duties of Handicapped Workers and of the necessary accommodations.

    SUNY Plattsburgh has developed a program to continue its efforts to employ and offer advancement opportunities to qualified Handicapped Workers.  In implementing this program, SUNY Plattsburgh will adhere to its policy of not discriminating against qualified Handicapped Workers in any personnel actions including employment, upgrading, demotions, transfers, recruitment or recruitment advertising, layoffs, terminations, rates of pay or other terms of compensation and selection for training.

    Any Handicapped Worker who believes that he or she is being discriminated against in any personnel action because of a physical or mental handicap should discuss this matter with his or her immediate supervisor or appropriate administrator.  Further, such complaint may be put in writing and forwarded to the Human Resource Office, Kehoe Building, Room 916.

For additional information about this policy, please contact the Policy Owner listed above.
