I. SUMMARY

Since July 2018, the City has contracted with Dickerson Disability Consulting Services, Inc. to provide various services including reasonable accommodation assessments, consulting on Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), essential job function analysis, and ergonomic assessments.
