XII. Parenting and Pregnancy

A. Accommodations for Employees

Employees and prospective employees or applicants may request reasonable accommodations related to pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical conditions. The College will provide reasonable accommodations for pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions, unless the requested accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the College. The College will review the requested accommodation and engage in an interactive process regarding the request. The College will not take retaliatory action against any individuals who requests or receives an accommodation for pregnancy, childbirth, or related medical reasons.

Requests for accommodation may be made to:

Human Resources
Mary Spence, Assistant Director
Eaton Center North

B. Accommodations for Students

Students may request reasonable modifications related to pregnancy or related conditions. Student Accessibility Support Services (“SASS”) will review requests for accommodation on a case-by-case basis.
