American Disabilities Act (ADA)

American Disabilities Act (ADA)

What is ADA?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, as amended, prohibits discrimination on the basis of a disability.  Texas A&M University - Texarkana (TAMUT) is committed to maintaining an accessible campus community and providing reasonable workplace accommodations under the ADA to qualified employees.

Reasonable workplace accommodations for employees with sincerely held religious beliefs in accordance with the Texas Labor Code, and/or for employees who qualify under the Pregnancy Discrimination Act of 1978 and Section 7(r) of the Fair Labor Standards Act may be made using the same process as outlined for ADA accommodation requests.
