YOUR CHURCH fully complies with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The church is also committed to ensuring equal opportunity in employment for qualified persons with disabilities. Therefore, all employment practices and activities are conducted in a non-discriminatory manner.
Church hiring procedures have been reviewed to ensure they provide meaningful employment opportunities for persons with disabilities. When asked, the church will make job applications available in alternative, accessible formats. YOUR CHURCH will also provide assistance in completing an employment application. Inquiries regarding an applicant’s ability to perform the duties of a position are only made pre-employment.
Reasonable accommodation is available to a staff member with a disability when the disability affects the performance of that staff member’s job duties and responsibilities as documented in the applicable Job Description. Employment decisions are only made based on the merits of the situation in accordance with defined criteria, not the disability of the individual.
Qualified individuals with disabilities are entitled to equal pay and other forms of compensation (or changes in compensation) as well as job assignments, positions, career progression, and seniority. All types of leaves of absence are made available to all staff members equally.
YOUR CHURCH is also committed to not discriminating against any qualified staff member or applicant because they may be related to or associated with a person with a disability. The church will follow any state or local law(s) that gives more protection to persons with disabilities than those required by the ADA.
YOUR CHURCH is committed to taking all other actions that are necessary to ensure equal employment opportunity for persons with disabilities in accordance with the ADA and any other applicable federal, state, or local laws.
