In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was established to ensure inclusive and equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in all aspects of American life. The ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability and provides for equal access to programs, services, and activities.
The ADA prohibits discrimination:
- In employment (Title I)
- In the provision of state and local government programs, services, and benefits (Title II)
- By private businesses and other entities that operate places of "public accommodation." (Title III)
The City of Ocean Springs is committed to ensuring that the terms and conditions mandated by the ADA are enforced within the City’s level of authority. Please click here to view our Adopted Policy.Filing an ADA Discrimination Complaint
