Reasonable Accommodation

The federal Americans with Disabilities Act “ADA”, and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, “FEHA” require employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified employees with a disability in order that the employee may perform the essential functions of their job.

The County will adhere to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, as amended, the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and all other applicable federal and state laws, regulations, and guidelines with respect to providing Reasonable Accommodation, as necessary, to afford equal employment opportunity for qualified individuals with disabilities.
