Policy Against Disability Discrimination

It is the College's policy not to discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities and to provide reasonable accommodations as required by law to otherwise qualified applicants, faculty or staff with disabilities in all employment practices.

It is the policy of NMC to consider qualified applicants with disabilities in its hiring process. If an applicant with a disability is qualified for a position that is available and can perform the important parts of the job, either without help or with a reasonable amount of help, it is NMC's policy to consider that person on an equal basis with any other applicants who apply for the job.  NMC will not make disability a factor in its hiring process; its employment decisions are based on job-related criteria, such as qualifications and experience, alone.

It is NMC's goal to hire the best-qualified individual for every position.  Employees are recruited and hired based on their abilities, not their disabilities.  Every effort will be made by NMC to have job advertising and job applications that are accessible to persons with disabilities.  In addition, NMC will make all reasonable accommodations to facilitate access to any location where it conducts interviews for persons with disabilities.  Questions asked in interviews will be designed to find out whether the candidate is the best-qualified person for the job and will not delve into non-job-related areas.
