ADA Grievance Procedure

Americans with Disability (ADA) Grievance Procedure

This Grievance Procedure is established to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990. It may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint alleging discrimination on the basis of disability in the provision of services, activities, or programs provided by CIL Jacksonville of Northeast Florida. CIL Jacksonville’s Personnel Policy governs employment-related complaints of disability discrimination.

The complaint should contain information about the alleged discrimination such as name, address, phone number of complainant and location, date, and description of the problem, as included in the ADA Grievance form. Alternative means of filing complaints or receiving the grievance procedure in an alternative format, such as: large print, Braille, personal interviews or a tape recording of the complaint will be made available for persons with disabilities upon request.

The complaint should be submitted by the grievant and/or his/her designee as soon as possible, but no later than 60 calendar days after the alleged violation to:
