Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Complaint and Grievance Procedure


The Complaint and Grievance Procedure is established to meet the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA") and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. It may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint or grievance alleging discrimination on the basis of disability in the provision of services, activities, programs, or benefits by the City of San Juan Capistrano. The City of San Juan Capistrano’s Personnel Policy governs employment-related complaints of disability discrimination.
