The ADA and City Governments: Common Problems

Astreet cornerccess to civic life by people with disabilities is a fundamental goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). To ensure that this goal is met, Title II of the ADA requires State and local governments to make their programs and services accessible to persons with disabilities. This requirement extends not only to physical access at government facilities, programs, and events — but also to policy changes that governmental entities must make to ensure that all people with disabilities can take part in, and benefit from, the programs and services of State and local governments. In addition, governmental entities must ensure effective communication — including the provision of necessary auxiliary aids and services — so that individuals with disabilities can participate in civic life.

Curb ramps providing access to streets and sidewalks are a basic city service.

One important way to ensure that Title II’s requirements are being met in cities of all sizes is through self-evaluation, which is required by the ADA regulations. Self-evaluation enables local governments to pinpoint the facilities, programs and services that must be modified or relocated to ensure that local governments are complying with the ADA.

This document contains a sampling of common problems shared by city governments of all sizes that have been identified through the Department of Justice’s ongoing enforcement efforts. The document provides examples of common deficiencies and explains how these problems affect persons with disabilities. The document is not intended to be comprehensive or exhaustive.   Read more…

ALC Construction, llc ADA Contractor | Construction Management

Request for Special Accommodation

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal civil rights statute, requires all state and local governmental entities, including the courts, to accommodate the needs of persons with disabilities who have an interest in court activities, programs, and services. The Superior Court does not discriminate on the basis of disability in employment or in the admission and access to its services, programs or activities. The Court has designated an ADA Coordinator at each Court facility to carry out each facility’s compliance with the nondiscrimination requirements of the ADA.

Persons with disabilities who require a special accommodation to access Court programs, services or activities may request the needed accommodation by filling out the Request for Accommodations by Persons with Disabilities and Order form, Judicial Council Form MC-410. Forms are available by clicking on the form name below, at the Clerk’s office and the ADA Coordinator’s office of each Courthouse, and by mail upon request to the ADA Coordinator’s office. Submit the completed form to the Clerk’s office or ADA Coordinator’s office of the Courthouse at issue. Jurors requesting a special accommodations should submit the completed form to the Juror Services Department.

National Council on Disability Explores Scope of and Solutions to Veterans Backlog

In partnership with current and former service members, the National Council on Disability (NCD) – an independent federal agency that advises the President, Congress and other federal agencies on disability policy – has released a report titled,  “Clearing the Backlog and Facilitating Benefits for America’s Veterans.” The 80-page report includes opinions and evaluations by key stakeholders, buoyed by the insights of experts, in addressing the current state of the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) disability claims backlog.

NCD thanks Paralyzed Veterans of America for numerous, invaluable contributions in preparing this report.

“In the same spirit with which Americans honor all Veterans for their service to our country, the National Council on Disability has chosen National Military Families month and the day after Veterans Day to offer these recommendations to help clear the backlog in getting necessary supports to U.S. Veterans,” said NCD member Captain Jonathan Kuniholm, USMC (Retired). “Making good on the promises made to Veterans with service-connected disabilities and health issues, financial uncertainty, and other hardships when adjusting to civilian life in a timely manner is the least that we can do for those ‘who shall have borne the battle.’ NCD hopes this report can facilitate meaningful improvements across numerous areas of concern.”

“NCD’s findings and recommendations focus on necessary actions that need to be taken to reduce the VA claims backlog,” said NCD member Janice Lehrer-Stein. “Improvements have been made, but more needs to be done. NCD recognizes the important and ongoing progress that has been made to date and remains available to assist in the collaboration of all federal agencies to find the best and most coordinated way forward.”

Resistance to ADA Compliance Continues After 22 Years in Existence

ADA News by ALC Construction

SACRAMENTO, CA – July marks 236 years of independence for America, and yet, not all Americans have the opportunity to live independently. July 26 marks the 22nd anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) (http://www.ada.gov/), which established a clear and comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Twenty-two years ago, the ADA cited that “society has tended to isolate and segregate individuals with disabilities, and, despite some improvements, such forms of discrimination against individuals with disabilities continue to be a serious and pervasive social problem.” Although great strides have been made, this continues to hold true for many people living with disabilities who, on a daily basis, still confront barriers to equality and independence.

ADA Title I: Employment

ADA Compliance Specialist
ALC Construction, llc Construction Management

Title I requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others. For example, it prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, promotions, training, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment. It restricts questions that can be asked about an applicant’s disability before a job offer is made, and it requires that employers make reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities, unless it results in undue hardship. Religious entities with 15 or more employees are covered under title I.

Title I complaints must be filed with the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) within 180 days of the date of discrimination, or 300 days if the charge is filed with a designated State or local fair employment practice agency. Individuals may file a lawsuit in Federal court only after they receive a “right-to-sue” letter from the EEOC.

Charges of employment discrimination on the basis of disability may be filed at any U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission field office. Field offices are located in 50 cities throughout the U.S. and are listed in most telephone directories under “U.S. Government.” For the appropriate EEOC field office in your geographic area, contact:

(800) 669-4000 (voice)
(800) 669-6820 (TTY)

Publications and information on EEOC-enforced laws may be obtained by calling:

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 requires the Department of Justice, along with other Federal agencies, to provide “technical assistance to individuals and insitutions that have rights or duties” under this law. The Department produced technical assistance materials for its 1991 ADA regulations implementing Title II (State and local governments) and Title III (public accommodations and non-profit service providers) and again in 2010 when the Department revised its ADA regulations for both titles.
