Equal Opportunity and Complaint Policies
The Pacific Mountain Workforce Development Council and partnering agencies agree to uphold the highest standards of non-discrimination. Agencies will provide information concerning the requirements of federal disability laws including: The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, which prohibits employers and social service agencies from discriminating against qualified individuals with physical or mental disabilities on any basis; Section 504, Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, which prohibits discrimination against persons with a physical, sensory or mental disability in programs receiving or benefiting from federal funding (e.g., financial assistance from the Department of Labor), or employed under federal contracts. Washington State law RCW 49.60, which also prohibits discrimination against persons with a physical, sensory or mental disability. These laws and their regulations are applicable to the Workforce Development Council, participating agencies and employers, for the benefit of all customers applying for, receiving or benefiting from services, programs and activities.
The Workforce Development Council and partnering agencies do not discriminate against individuals or classes of individuals on the basis of a physical, mental, or sensory disability when providing assistance, benefits, and services. This includes all community-based services.
No customer shall be excluded from participation in, denied the benefit of, subjected to discrimination under, or denied services, access to services or programs and/or facilities, in the administration of, or in connection with, any such program or activity funded in whole, or in part by the Workforce Investment Act or in connection with partnering agencies, or employers on the basis of disability.
The need to provide a reasonable accommodation will not be a factor in the selection of a participant for program participation, or any opportunity, which may have an impact on the person’s career development.
