In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 ("ADA"), the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) will not discriminate against qualified individuals with disabilities on the basis of disability in its services, programs, or activities.
SCDOT does not discriminate on the basis of disability in its hiring or employment practices and complies with all regulations promulgated by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission under Title I of the ADA.
(SCDOT) will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in the SCDOT's programs, services, and activities, including qualified sign language interpreters, documents in Braille, and other ways of making information and communications accessible to people who have speech, hearing, or vision impairments.
Modifications to Policies and Procedures:
SCDOT will make all reasonable modifications to policies and programs to ensure that people with disabilities have an equal opportunity to enjoy all of its programs, services, and activities. For example, individuals with service animals are welcomed in SCDOT offices, even where pets are generally prohibited.
