ADA Notice: Reasonable accommodations

About

In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”), the County of Marin will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.

The County of Marin will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modifications of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.

Types of reasonable accommodations

Employment

The County of Marin does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the ADA.

Effective Communication

The County of Marin will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the County’s programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

 Modifications to Policies and Procedures

The County of Marin will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in the City’s offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.

Reasonable accommodation requests

To request auxiliary aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service, or activity of the County of Marin, please contact Laney C Davidson, Disability Access Manager and ADA Coordinator.

Job applicants and County employees may request reasonable accommodations or address another disability related concern, by contacting Megan Numair, Senior Human Resources Analyst.

Please note that the ADA does not require the County of Marin to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
