Americans with Disabilities Act

Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 prohibits Baylor University from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment. Baylor is required to make a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of a qualified applicant or employee if it would not impose an "undue hardship" on the operation of the employer's business.

An undue hardship is defined as an accommodation that is "excessively costly, extensive, substantial, or disruptive, or that would fundamentally alter the nature or operation of the business." In determining undue hardship, Baylor will consider factors such as nature and cost of accommodation, as well as the impact on the accommodation on the specific department providing the accommodation.

To request an accommodation under the ADA, individuals should complete and submit the Accommodation Request Form and the Medical Information Form to Human Resources. For additional information regarding Baylor University's Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Policy, please review BU-PP 415.
