The City of Moses Lake is committed to providing equal employment opportunity to employees and applicants, including those who have physical and/or mental disabilities, including life threatening illnesses.
Reasonable accommodation is used as a means of overcoming unnecessary barriers which prevent or restrict opportunities for otherwise qualified individuals with disabilities in these areas related to employment: the application process; job performance; and benefits, privileges, or terms and conditions of employment.
In partnership with the applicant or employee, the City of Moses Lake will evaluate a request for reasonable accommodation to the known physical and/or mental disabilities of an otherwise qualified applicant or employee with the disability. Requests for reasonable accommodation should be made as soon as possible to the human resources department.
The Americans with Disabilities Act ("ADA" or "the Act"), enacted on July 26, 1990, provides civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities in the areas of employment, public accommodations, State and local government services and telecommunications. This regulation implements subtitle A of title II of the ADA, which applies to State and local governments. The City of Moses Lake is committed to ensuring compliance with this act and its provisions.
