Americans with Disabilities Act Requirement Notice
In accordance with the requirement of title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council (CJCC) will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities, because of the disability, in its services, programs, or activities.
EMPLOYMENT: CJCC does not discriminate because of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations publicized by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under title I of the ADA.
EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION: CJCC will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in CJCC 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: CJCC will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all its programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in Criminal Justice Coordinating Council offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.
Anyone who requires supporting aid or service for effective communication, or a modification of policies or procedures to participate in a program, service, or activity of the CJCC, should contact the: Office of Human Resources, Sherille Eunice, ADA Coordinator, Suite 440, 404-683-5434 Mobile 404-657-1972 Office as soon as possible but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
The ADA does not require CJCC to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its program or services or impose an undue financial or administrative burden. Complaints that a program, service, or activity of the CJCC is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to Office of Human Resources, Sherille Eunice ADA Coordinator, Suite 440, 404-683-5434 Mobile 404-657-1972 Office. The CJCC will not place an additional charge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individual with disabilities to cover the cost of providing supporting aids or 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.
