Disability Accommodation

Imua Physical Therapy is committed to complying fully with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act (ADAAA) and ensuring equal opportunity in employment for qualified persons with disabilities. All employment practices and activities are conducted on a non-discriminatory basis.

Hiring procedures have been reviewed and provide persons with disabilities meaningful employment opportunities. Upon request, job applications are available in alternative, accessible formats, as is assistance in completing the application. Pre-employment inquiries are made only regarding an applicant’s ability to perform the duties of the position.

Reasonable accommodation is available to employees, where their disability affects the performance of job functions. All employment decisions are 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 in job assignments, classifications, organizational structures, position descriptions, lines of progression, and seniority lists. Leave of all types will be available to all employees on an equal basis.

Imua Physical Therapy is also committed to not discriminating against any qualified employees or applicants because they are related to or associated with a person with a disability. Imua Physical Therapy will follow any state or local law that provides individuals with disabilities greater protection than the ADA and ADAAA.

This policy is neither exhaustive nor exclusive. Imua Physical Therapy is committed to taking all other actions necessary to ensure equal employment opportunity for persons with disabilities in accordance with the ADA, ADAAA and all other applicable federal, state, and local laws.
