ADA-AA/ Section 504 Complaint Procedure
ADA-AA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act Complaint Procedure
The University of Massachusetts Boston has adopted an internal complaint procedure for prompt and equitable resolution of complaints alleging any action prohibited by federal regulations implementing Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADA-AA). Section 504 and ADA-AA state, in part, that "no qualified individual with a disability shall, by reason of such disability, be excluded from participation in or be denied the benefits of the services, programs, or activities of a public entity, or be subjected to discrimination by such an entity."
Complaints include, but are not limited to, a denial of a requested accommodation, the inadequacy of an accommodation, the inaccessibility of a program or activity due to disability, or discrimination or harassment based on disability.
All such complaints should be addressed to the attention of the ADA Compliance Officer who has been designated to coordinate the University's ADA-AA and Section 504 compliance efforts.
