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.  For more information on how to request a reasonable accommodation related to pregnancy and pregnancy-related conditions, visit the ADA page. Submit a pregnancy leave request in AbsenceTracker Employee Self-Service Dashboard (PLEASE NOTE: COVID-19 vaccine exemption requests must be made using the COVID-19 Vaccine Exemption Form when it becomes available) to request a medical leave of absence related to pregnancy.  NOTE:  This form is only for employees who do not meet the qualifications for Family Medical Leave and need a leave of absence to recover from the birth of a child.

Effective May 29, 2022, all new pregnancy leave requests will be managed through the AbsenceSoft Leave Management System, known as AbsenceTracker. AbsenceTracker will be 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.


The University of Alabama provides reasonable accommodations for employees’ and applicants’ sincerely held religious beliefs or practices unless doing so would impose an undue hardship on the University. For more information or to request an accommodation, please select the appropriate form:
