It is the policy of DRLC to provide equality of opportunity in employment as required by all applicable laws.

Consistent with DRLC's mission, DRLC will comply with its legal obligations to seek to reasonably accommodate employees and applicants with disabilities, unless the employee or applicant is otherwise not qualified to safely perform all of the essential functions of the position.
An employee needing a reasonable accommodation should request the accommodation from the Director of Administration, and, if possible, identifying the reasonable accommodation needed.
