ADA Notice - Notice Under the Americans with Disabilities Act

Employment

The City of Oviedo does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Effective Communication

The City of Oviedo will generally, upon request, provide approximate auxiliary aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the City's programs, services and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in alternative formats, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.

Modifications to Policies & Procedures

For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in City offices, even where pets are generally prohibited. The City will not impose unnecessary eligibility standards or rules that deny individuals with disabilities the opportunity to participate in services, programs or activities.

Surcharges

The City of Oviedo will not place a surcharge on a particular individual with a disability or any group of individuals with disabilities to cover the cost of providing auxiliary aids/services or reasonable modification of policy, such as retrieving items from locations that are open to the public but are not accessible to persons who use wheelchairs.

Architectural Barriers

The City of Oviedo will take all required action to provide access to its buildings and facilities to individuals with disabilities.

Fundamental Alterations/Undue Burden

The ADA does not require the City of Oviedo to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden.
