ADA Compliance Information
Employment: Fairfield 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. The Town’s Personnel Policy governs employment-related complaints of disability discrimination.
Effective Communication: Fairfield will generally, upon request, provide appropriate aids and services leading to effective communication for qualified persons with disabilities so they can participate equally in Fairfield'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.
Modification to Policies and Procedures: Fairfield 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.

Department of Human Resources

The ADA does not require Fairfield to take any action that would fundamentally alter the nature of its programs or services, or impose an undue financial or administrative burden. Complaints that a program, service, or activity of Fairfield is not accessible to persons with disabilities should be directed to the ADA Coordinator in accordance with the Town of Fairfield Grievance Procedure link below.
