Individuals with Disabilities/Veterans Affirmative Action Invitation

Hitchiner Manufacturing Co. Inc., is a government contractor subject to the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Assistance Act of 1974  ("the Acts"), as amended, which require government contractors to take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified persons with disabilities, veterans of the Vietnam era, and special disabled veterans.

If you have a disability, you are a veteran of the Vietnam era, you are a special disabled veteran, a recently separated veteran, or a veteran who served on active duty during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized, and would like to be considered under the affirmative action program, please tell us.  You may inform us of your desire to benefit under the program at this time or at any time in the future.  This information will assist us in placing you in an appropriate position and in making accommodations for your disability. Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment.

Information you submit will be kept confidential, except that supervisors and managers may be informed regarding restrictions on the work or duties of persons with disabilities or special disabled veterans, and regarding any accommodations, first aid and safety personnel may be informed, when and to the extent appropriate, if the condition might required emergency treatment, and government officials investigating compliance with the Acts will be informed.

If you are a person with a disability or a special disabled veteran, we would like to include you under the affirmative action program.  In order to assure proper placement of all employees, it would assist us if you tell us about any special methods, skills and procedures which qualify you for positions that you might not otherwise be able to do because of your disability, so that you will be considered for any positions of that kind. After a job offer is made, it would assist us if you tell us about the accommodations that we could make which would enable you to perform the job properly and safely. This can include special equipment, changes in the physical layout of the job, elimination of certain duties relating to the job or other accommodations.
