WAC 110-300-0030

Under the ADA, a provider is not required to remodel or rebuild an already existing structure to accommodate every potential disability. A provider is only required to make “reasonable modifications” to allow a specific person with a disability to participate equally with non-disabled peers. This may be an employee, a child with a disability who wants to enroll in your program, or the parent with a disability or relative of an enrolled child who wishes to attend program events. Providers and people with a disability are encouraged to discuss ways to achieve reasonable modifications. Please consult the resources listed here or your attorney to determine whether you may need to make reasonable modifications.

WAC 110-300-0030(2)

WAC 110-300-0030 has two subsections. Subsection 0030(2) requires a provider to "have a written nondiscrimination policy addressing at least the factors listed in subsection (1) of this section." Subsection 0030(1) lists "race, creed, ethnicity, national origin, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, class, age, religion, or ability" as factors upon which a provider is not allowed to base discrimination in employment or client services. Accordingly, WAC 110-300-0030 requires that a provider must not discriminate in how they employee people or treat clients and requires a written nondiscrimination policy that addresses at least the factors of race, creed, ethnicity, national origin, marital status, gender, sexual orientation, class, age, religion, or ability.
