The Americans with Disabilities Act passed in 1990 excludes discrimination against employment opportunities and services provided. Reasonable accommodations (without creating hardship or directly threaten work place safety) are to be made when an applicant or employee is qualified and interested in a position. Transportation, publicly accessible facilities, state and local government programs and services, and employment are some of the things affected and covered under the ADA.
Jefferson Township Dial-A-Ride is committed to protect and assure that citizens covered under the ADA are not denied transportation benefits or other services due to their disability. All levels of managerial status and employees have equal division of responsibility in complying with the ADA. Jefferson Township Dial-A-Ride possesses the accountability of this commitment and fully supports the ADA and their requirements. The Jefferson Township Dial-A-Ride along with Grace Rhinesmith, Director of Recreation, takes complaints seriously and will investigate any and all complaints made in a reasonable amount of time to ensure satisfactory service and fairness.
