The criteria used in relation to these terms are those specified by the government. These terms have no independent legal or factual significance. Although CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MUL TlDISCIPLlNARIOS will use the terms in total good faith effort in connection with its AAP, such use does not necessarily signify that the CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MUL TlDISCIPLlNARIOS agrees that these terms are. properly applied to any particular factual situation. This is not an admission of noncompliance with EEO laws, regulations and objectives. Whenever the term "goal" is used, it is expressly intended that it should not be used to discriminate against any applicant or employee because of race, color, religion, gender, or national origin. Based on analyses of each job group, areas of concern have been identified and discussed along with proposed corrective actions to bring the level of utilization up to availability if applicable. In each case where possible underutilization has been identified, affirmative steps will be taken as appropriate, consistent with any of the action-oriented programs. CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIOISCIPLlNARIOS has prepared the underutilization analysis and has placed goals at least equal to the availability figure derived for women, as appropriate for that job group. We have evaluated our personnel activity by performing the analyses of selection decisions as required by The Uniform Guidelines on Employee Selection Procedures pursuant to 41 CFR CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPUNARIOS seeks to ensure that personnel activities, such as, recruitment, selection, training, compensation, benefits, discipline, promotion, transfer, demotions, and terminations remain free of illegal discriminations based on gender and disability or veteran status.

Post jobs with the state employment service and, if we identify a women's organization that can serve as a referral base for qualified women in underutilized areas, establish a linkage and referral system with them. 3.

This information is posted on bulletin boards in common areas accessible to both applicants and employees. II. PERSONS COVERED BY THIS AFFIRMATIVE ACTION PROGRAM 41 CFR , 41 CFR , 41 CFR Some Important Definitions Individual with a disability means any person who: Has a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more of such person's major life activities; Has a record of such impairment; or Is regarded as having such an impairment. Substantially limits means: Unable to perform a major life activity that the average person in the general population can perform; Significantly restricted as to the condition, manner, or duration under which an individual can perform a particular major life activity as compared to the condition, manner, or duration under which the average person in the general population can perform that same major life activity; or Significantly restricted in the ability to perform either a class of jobs or a broad range of jobs in various classes as compared to the average person having comparable training, skills, and abilities. The inability to perform a single, particular job does not constitute a substantial limitation in the major life activity of working.
20 Major life activities means: Functions such as caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working. Qualified individual with a disability means: An individual with a disability who satisfies the requisite skill, experience, education, and other job-related requirements of the employment position such individual holds or desires, and who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of such position. EXCEPT, the terms individual with a disability and qualified individual with a disability do not include individuals currently engaging in the illegal use of drugs, when the employer acts on the basis of such use. These terms also do not include an individual who is an alcoholic whose current use of alcohol prevents such individual from performing the essential functions of the employment position such individual holds or desires or whose employment, by reason of such current alcohol abuse, would constitute a direct threat to property or to the health or safety of the individual or others. Disabled veteran means: A person entitled to disability compensation under laws administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs for disability rated at 30 per cent or more, or a disability rated at 10 or 20 percent in the case of a veteran who has been determined under 38 USC 3106 to have a serious employment handicap; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a serviceconnected disability. Qualified special disabled veteran means: A special disabled veteran who satisfies the requisite skill, experience, education and other job-related requirements of the employment position such veteran holds or desires, and who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of such position. Veteran of the Vietnam Era means: A person who served on active duty for a period of more than 180 days, and was discharged or released therefrom with other than a dishonorable discharge, if any part of such active duty occurred in the Republic of Vietnam between February 28, 1961, and May 7, 1975; or between August 5, 1964, and May 7, 1975, in all other cases; or was discharged or released there from active duty for a service-connected disability if any part of such active duty was
21 occu rred in the Repu bjic of Vietnam between February 28, 1961, and May 7, 1975; or between August 5, 1964, and May 7, 1975, in all other cases. Other eligible veterans means: A person who selved on active duty during a war or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized.

CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS will not make a pre-employment invitation to self-identify to disabled individuals or special disabled veterans. The form of the invitation is as prescribed by the regulations: it indicates that identification may be made now or at any time in the future, and it summarizes the relevant portions of the acts and of CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISC1PLINARIOS's AAP. The invitation states that the information is voluntary and will be kept confidential and will be used in a manner consistent with law. CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCJPLlNARIOS will maintain a separate file on persons who have self-identified and will provide that file to the OFCCP upon request.
22 IV. POLICY STATEMENT 41 CFR (a), 41 CFR (a), 41 CFR (a) It is the policy of CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS to seek and employ qualified personnel at its locations and facilities, and to provide equal employment opportunities for all applicants and employees in recruiting, hiring, placement, training, compensation and benefits, promotion, transfer, and termination. To achieve this, CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS will take affirmative action to employ and advance in employment qualified individuals with disabilities, and covered veterans and will administer all personnel actions without regard to disability and base all such decisions on valid job requirements. CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS will ensure that applicants and employees with disabilities are informed of the contents of its policy statement. Employees and applicants will not be subject to unlawful harassment. V. REVIEW OF PERSONNEL PROCESSES PROPER CONSIDERATION OF QUALIFICATIONS 41 CFR (b), 41 CFR (b), 41 CFR (b) CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS will review its employment procedures at least annually to ensure careful, thorough, and systematic consideration of the job qualifications of applicants and employees with known disabilities and covered veterans for job vacancies filled both by hiring or promoting, and for all training opportunities. CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS ensures that its personnel processes do not stereotype disabled persons in a manner, which limits their access to all jobs for which they are qualified. CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS periodically reviews such processes and makes any necessary modifications to ensure that these obligations are carried out. A description of the review and any necessary modifications to personnel processes or development of new processes will be included in any affirmative action programs required under this part.
23 ) VI. REVIEW OF PHYSICAL AND MENTAL QUALIFICATIONS 41 CFR (c), 41 CFR (c), 41 CFR (c) CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS believes none of our job descriptions have requirements that tend to screen out qualified disabled individuals unless they are job related and consistent with business necessity. Nevertheless, CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS will review physical and mental qualifications of any job whenever the position description for that job is revised. CENTRO DE ESTUDIOS MULTIDISCIPLINARIOS does not administer preplacement physical examinations. Information obtained about any applicant or employee's medical condition or history shall be collected and maintained on separate forms and in separate medical files. These files will be treated as confidential except for: (i) (ii) (iii) Supervisors and managers may be informed regarding necessary restrictions on the work or duties of the applicant or employee and necessary accommodations; First aid and safety personnel may be informed, when appropriate, if the disability might require emergency treatment; and Government officials engaged in enforcing the laws administered by OFCCP or enforcing the Americans with Disabilities Act shall be provided relevant information on request. Information obtained regarding the medical history or condition of any applicant or employee shall not be used for any purpose inconsistent with the law.
