Disability and Accommodation in Employment
The Montana Human Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) prohibit discrimination because of a physical or mental disability.
To be protected under the Montana Human Rights Act and the ADAAA, an applicant or employee with a disability must:
- Have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; or
- Have a record of such an impairment; or
- Be regarded or perceived as having such an impairment; and
- Be able to perform the essential functions of the position with or without a reasonable accommodation.
Reasonable accommodation with respect to employment matters should be coordinated with Human Resources.
Applicants and prospective employees with disabilities may submit requests for accommodation by contacting MSU ADA Coordinator listed below or sending an e-mail to [email protected]
