American with Disabilities Act Policy and Procedures

Scope

It is the policy of DSBWorldWide Inc. dba FHC FoodHandlerClasses.com to comply with all state and federal laws concerning the employment of persons with disabilities so as not to discriminate against them, and to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified individuals in all aspects of employment.

Definitions

An individual with a disability, as described by the ADA, is a person who:
 

  • Has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity;
  • Has a record or history of substantially limiting impairment, or
  • Is regarded or perceived as having a substantially limiting impairment.

For purposes of employment, a “qualified individual with disability” is a person with a disability, as defined above, who also:
 

  • Meets the FoodHandlerClasses.com requirements for the job in question, including education, training, employment experience, skills, or licenses, and
  • Is able to perform the essential functions of fundamental duties of the job in question, with or without a reasonable accommodation.

Request for Reasonable Accommodation 

If you are a qualified individual with a disability, and you believe that you will need some change or adjustment to one or more pre-employment activities to enable you to be considered for a job opening, you may request a reasonable accommodation.

Reasonable accommodations available to qualified individuals with disabilities may include, but are not limited to:
 

  • Providing written materials in accessible formats;
  • Providing readers or sign language interpreters;
  • Conducting recruitment, interviews and test in accessible locations;
  • Providing or modifying equipment or devices; or
  • Adjusting or modifying application policies and procedures as necessary.

Your request for a reasonable accommodation may be made orally or in writing.

FoodHandlerClasses.com reserves the right to memorialize any such request in written form for record-keeping and quality assurance.

To request an accommodation:
 

  • You, or someone acting on your behalf, must inform FoodHandlerClasses.com that you need some sort of change or adjustment to the application, interviewing and/or selection process because of your impairment.
  • Unless your disability and the need for accommodation are obvious, the employer may ask you for reasonable documentation from your physician, license healthcare practitioner, or other appropriate professional explaining the disability and why an accommodation is necessary.
  • Although you may request specific accommodations, if more than one possible accommodation is available that will meet your needs, FoodHandlerClasses.com reserves the right to choose which accommodation to provide. If an accommodation that FoodHandlerClasses.com proposes will not meet your needs, you will need to explain why.
  • FoodHandlerClasses.com does not need to provide an accommodation if doing so would create an undue hardship.

If you wish to submit your request for a reasonable accommodation in writing, please complete the attached form and return it to FoodHandlerClasses.com.

An individual’s need for an accommodation may change over time as a result of changes in the individual’s own level of disability or impairment, treatments available to mitigate a disability, changes in the job itself, or changes in work location. What qualifies as reasonable in one set of circumstances may not be reasonable or necessary in another. If and when circumstances change, it is your responsibility to notify your employer if you need, or continue to need, a reasonable accommodation.
