Policies

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Whatcom Council of Governments (WCOG) will ensure that no qualified disabled individual shall, solely on the basis of his or her disability, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any of its programs, services, or activities as provided by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). WCOG further ensures that every effort will be made to provide nondiscrimination in all of its programs and activities regardless of the funding source.

Complaint Policy

The WCOG Complaint Policy was established to give the public a simple and accessible mechanism with which to provide feedback to WCOG, including complaints, comments, suggestions or concerns.

Discrimination and Harassment Policy

WCOG prohibits unlawful discrimination in the workplace and strictly enforces its discrimination and harassment rules.
