Americans with Disability Act (ADA) Statement of Compliance
The Americans with Disability Act (the “ADA”) is a federal law enacted in 1990 that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, public accommodations, state and local government operations, transportation, and telecommunications.
Under the ADA, it is unlawful to discriminate in employment against individuals with disabilities, or to refuse to accommodate the known disability of an otherwise qualified individual, unless to do so causes undue hardship. The ADA Coordinator should be contacted with any issues related to ADA by calling 704-736-8471 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lincoln County will ensure that there is no discrimination against a qualified individual with a disability in services, or activities provided. Furthermore, Lincoln County is committed to accommodate the known disabilities of its employees and citizens and is working to make Lincoln County a place where all can live and work.
The ADA requires that all Lincoln County services, and activities be accessible to persons with disabilities. The County's employees and citizens with ADA-related questions, concerns, and grievances should contact the ADA Coordinator at 704-736-8471 or emailing email@example.com. Lincoln County will work to resolve all grievances for employees and citizens as expeditiously as possible.
