College employees are to seek support for ADA compliance and its application to their position duties from the College’s Human Resources Office. The Disabilities Services Office may be an additional source of information and resources.
The law requires an employer to make a reasonable accommodation only to the known limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability. Accordingly, it is the responsibility of employees to inform their manager or other College manager that an accommodation is needed to perform the essential job functions.
All College employees are accountable for ensuring that any content they post on web-based platforms are is compliant with current ADA regulations and is accessible to students and employees with disabilities. This applies to web-based platforms owned by the College and/or by an outside, third-party vendor. Online instructional courses will only to be provided through MHCC approved, standard Learning Management Systems (LMS.)
Staff and faculty will ensure that any information posted on any MHCC online platforms for student use is ADA compliant. This includes but is not limited to: course/class materials, videos, links to videos or other online information and all posted documents. Content posted on MHCC’s web site will be ADA compliant. Content found not to be ADA compliant will not be posted. The MHCC Office of Information Technology will assist employees to help them meet this requirement.
Purchases of software will follow all MHCC approved procedures for purchasing, as managed by Administrative Services. Statements of ADA compliance will be obtained prior to purchase and/or included in new contracts.
Any exceptions to this Administrative Regulation, or parts within, requires written approval from the ADA Compliance Officer, Disabilities Services Coordinator/Counselor, The College President, Vice President of Instruction or Vice President of Student Development.
