Americans with Disabilities Act
The City of Redmond does not discriminate on the basis of disability in the admission or access to, treatment in, or employment in, its programs or activities and strives to make all of our programs and services available to every Redmond citizen. Reference documents on this site include notices, grievance procedures, curb ramp request forms, and request for accommodations.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 provides guidelines to comply with accessible programs, services and building construction, but we always need to hear from our citizens to direct resources where they are most needed.
Title I - Employment
Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act addresses the rights of individuals with disabilities in employment settings. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act Handbook (U.S. Department of Justice, 1991), the purpose of Title I is to ensure that qualified individuals with disabilities are protected from discrimination on the basis of disability. As long as the individual is qualified for an employment opportunity, they cannot be denied that opportunity simply because they have a disability and must therefore be given the same consideration for employment that individuals without disabilities are given.
Title II - Public Services
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act addresses the right of access to public services by individuals with disabilities. According to the Americans with Disabilities Act Handbook (U.S. Department of Justice, 1991), the purpose of Title II is to prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability in all services, programs and activities provided or made available by local or state governments and their affiliate agencies. This is regardless of whether they receive federal funding or how many employees they have.
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964
The City of Redmond assures that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, as provided by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Civil Rights Restoration Act of 1987 (P.L. 100.259), be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity. In addition, the City of Redmond also incorporates other State and Federal classes such as disability, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, or source of income. The City of Redmond assures every effort will be made to ensure nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities, whether those programs and activities are federally funded or not.
