The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), as amended by the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008, prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with a disability. The ADA provides comprehensive civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, public accommodations, and governmental services.
Title I of the ADA prohibits state and local governments from discriminating against qualified individuals with a disability regarding employment and employment opportunities. All decisions related to employment, including, but not limited to, recruitment, selection, training, assignment, reassignment, promotion, compensation, transfer, and benefit, will be made based on the individual’s knowledge, skills, and abilities, in conjunction with the needs of the County, while considering any requested reasonable accommodation.
Title II of the ADA prohibits of state and local governments from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in providing services, programs, and activities, as well as in providing access to public facilities. Regulations implementing Title II of the ADA call upon state and local governments to ensure that individuals with physical and mental disabilities are afforded equal opportunity to participate in any public benefit programs, services, and activities. Guilford County strives to ensure that individuals with disabilities can use, participate in, and enjoy the services, programs, and activities, as well as facilities, which the County provides.
It is the policy of Guilford County not to discriminate based on disability against any qualified individual.
