Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) provide comprehensive civil rights protection to individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, public accommodations, state and local government services and programs, and telecommunications. Title II of the ADA states, in part, that:
No otherwise qualified disabled individual shall, solely by reason of such disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subject to discrimination in programs or activities sponsored by a public entity.
CHANGE, Inc. has adopted a complaint procedure to provide prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by the U.S. Department of Justice regulations implementing Title II of the ADA. Any individiual who believes he/she or a specific class of individuals with disabilities has been subject to unlawful discrimination on the basis of that disability by CHANGE, Inc. or any of the CHANGE, Inc.’s contractors or suppliers may, by him or herself or by an authorized representative, file a written complaint.
Complaints or questions should be addressed to the Human Resources Director, who has been designated to coordinate compliance with section 504.
