Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The University of Alabama complies with applicable laws and provides reasonable accommodations to applicants for employment and to its employees who are individuals with disabilities and/or disabled veterans. The ADA also requires that employers provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals with known disabilities. A reasonable accommodation is designed to assist an employee in the performance of his or her job without placing an undue hardship on The University or posing a direct threat to the employee or to other individuals. For more information, visit the ADA page.
The University of Alabama is committed to providing an environment for employees that is free from illegal harassment based on several protected categories such as sex, which includes discrimination on the basis of pregnancy. Per the University’s Pregnant Employee Policy, reasonable accommodations may be provided for a pregnant applicant or employee’s known limitations – specifically, any physical and/or mental conditions related to, affected by, or arising out of pregnancy, childbirth, or other pregnancy-related medical conditions – unless the requested accommodations are unreasonable and/or would pose an undue hardship on the University’s operations. For more information on how to request a reasonable accommodation related to physical and mental disabilities, visit the ADA page.
All employee requests for pregnancy-related accommodations or leave are managed through the AbsenceSoft Leave Management System, known as AbsenceTracker. AbsenceTracker is available via single sign-on in myBama. To access AbsenceTracker, employees should login with myBama username and password, navigate to the Employee tab and select the AbsenceTracker logo to access your Employee Self-Service (ESS) portal.
