The Village of Hudson is an equal opportunity employer committed to ensuring compliance with all applicable federal and state laws. While the Village is unable to comment on the employment of any specific employee due to privacy concerns for that individual, in general, the Village treats each employee request for work accommodations on an individual, case by case basis taking into account such factors as the employee’s work restrictions and length of time those restrictions will be in place, the essential and non-essential job functions of the employee’s position, and the impact of the employee’s restrictions on other employees with the same job duties. The Village of Hudson Police Department is very small with only 1 full-time officer and 5 part-time officers. Due to the small size of the department, not having an officer available for work assignments for a prolonged period of time creates an undue burden on the operations of the department. The Village is not required to create additional employment that it would have not otherwise created in order to accommodate an employee’s work restrictions.
