Americans with Disabilities Act Information

 

Pierce College is committed to providing reasonable accommodations to students, faculty and staff with disabilities in compliance with the American with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and corresponding state law.

Under the ADA, anyone who has a physical or mental impairment substantially limiting one or more major life activities, has a record of such impairment, or is regarded as having such impairment, is considered a person with a disability. In accordance with the provisions of the ADA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, disabilities may include, but are not necessarily limited to, visual impairment, mobility and orthopedic impairments, hearing impairments, chronic medical conditions, learning disabilities, and psychological disorders.

In terms of employment, the law defines a "qualified individual with a disability" as a person who can perform the essential functions of the job with or without reasonable accommodation. Reasonable accommodation is determined on an individual basis depending on an employee's job duties, functional limitations and whether the proposed accommodation will result in undue hardship to the college.

The Office of College Compliance (OCC) has been designated to coordinate the College's compliance with the ADA and with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. The office handles inquiries about compliance and investigates complaints relating to accommodations and service requests. Additional information may be obtained by contacting the College Compliance Officer at (818) 710-2508 and compliance@piercecollege.edu or visiting the OCC website at www.piercecollege.edu/offices/compliance
