Often, you know the civil rights laws that apply to your federally assisted programs and activities (such as Title VI of the Civil Rights Act, the Rehabilitation Act, the Age Discrimination Act, the Workforce Investment Act, Title IX of the Education Amendments Act, and so on), but you get stuck trying to figure out how to implement these laws on the ground. We can help.
For a one-time cost, we will work with you to develop policies and procedures tailored to the structure of your organization, and the nature of the federally assisted programs and activities you offer. There are a variety of procedures required to document your compliance with civil rights laws, including:
● Discrimination complaint procedures
● Procedures for serving limited English proficient (LEP) populations
● Procedures for serving persons with disabilities and handling accommodation requests
● Procedures for handling religious-based accommodation requests
● Procedures for gathering, handling, and storing medical information
● Procedures for including required assurances language on all agreements
We also offer a variety of consultation services from on-site consultation and training to off-site desk audits of your website and other written materials. We work hard to provide the most cost-effective recommendations for you to ensure compliance with federal nondiscrimination and equal opportunity mandates. Failure to comply with federal civil rights laws in delivering aid, services, training, or benefits to the public may result in the loss of funding.
