Studying the Problem
Within five working days of ADA Complaint Form submission, a compliance officer contacts the complainant to determine if the Americans with Disabilities Act applies. If affirmative, the officer will investigate the problem and possible solutions. This process will take no more than 30 working days.
Solving the Problem
The compliance officer will recommend a solution in writing.
An appeal to the compliance officer's recommendations may be made in writing to the Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs, within five (5) working days of receiving the resolution. The Vice President for Academic and Student Affairs will respond in writing within ten (10) working days.
If the complainant is dissatisfied with the Vice President's response, other legal remedies may be pursued, such as submitting the complaint to the Civil Rights Division of the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (employment issues) or the Office of Federal Contract Compliance (access to other programs and services).
