The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) broadly protects the rights of individuals with disabilities in access to local government services, public accommodation, and transportation, among other aspects of American life. The below grievance form may be used by anyone who wishes to file a complaint of discrimination on the basis of disability in accessing any services, activities, programs, or benefits provided by the County of Kern.  This process would not be used by employees of Kern County, as employee discrimination complaints (including discrimination based on disability) should be filed with the employee’s department or with Kern County Human Resources under Civil Service Rule 1800.   

ADA Disability Grievance Complaint Form

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