Most Integrated Employment Setting - State Self-Assessment

Introduction

To Facilitate Voluntary Compliance with Federal Law, Regulation and Guidance Designed to Prevent the Unnecessary Segregation of Persons with Disabilities by Entities Administering Public Funds

This tool has been created to assist Governors and State Administrations in understanding and voluntarily meeting their obligations under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act, 42 U.S.C. §§ 12131-12134, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 794 et seq.  Both federal laws prevent the unnecessary segregation of persons with disabilities.

This tool is specifically focused on assisting Governors and State Administrations in understanding and voluntarily meeting their obligations in relation to the provision of publicly-funded employment and non-work day services to persons with disabilities.

For further interpretation of these laws, see Olmstead v. L.C., 527 U.S. 581, 591 (1999).  Also see Statement of the United States Department of Justice on Enforcement of the Integration Mandate of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Olmstead v. L.C. (June 29, 2011) which can be found in Appendix A of this document.
