Public Comment Sought on Office of ADA Rules

The NC Office of State Human Resources in compliance with G.S. 150B-21.3A, the Office on the Americans with Disabilities Act (OADA) is reviewing existing OADA rules to determine if the rules are necessary. The Office of ADA Rules reflects the State Human Resource’s initial determination on rules.

 

Public comments on the OADA’s initial determination will be received until July 8, 2014.  Please direct all comments to Nancy Lipscomb, Director, Office on the Americans with Disabilities Act, Office of State Human Resources, 1331 Mail Service Center, Raleigh, NC 27699-1331 or via email at nancy.lipscomb@nc.gov
