ADA Policy The Company abides by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and any similar state

law. Under that law, persons with disabilities may seek reasonable accommodation in regard to performing the essential functions of their jobs. Any employee who believes that he or she is disabled is welcome to discuss that possibility with Human Resources. Except where there exists a business need to know, others in the Company will not be informed of an employee’s disability. Under the ADA and similar laws, the Company and an employee who wishes to be reasonably accommodated should enter into an “interactive process.” Through that process, the Company and the employee will share and discuss medical data and other relevant information in a good faith effort to determine if the employee is disabled within the law. If so, the Company and the employee also will discuss potential accommodations regarding the disability. Where applicable, the Company will reasonably accommodate the employee with respect to the essential functions of his or her job unless doing so would constitute an undue hardship or the disability creates a direct threat regarding safety.
