Disabilities Advisory Committee (DAC)

Graphic images of people

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 require employers to assure that persons with disabilities are given equal employment opportunities and are treated fairly as employees. These laws require employers to provide reasonable accommodation to employees with disabilities in order that they may perform their jobs successfully. State agencies are required to develop and implement an equal employment program aimed at assuring that persons with disabilities have access to positions in State government on an equal and competitive basis with the general population.


Each state agency shall establish a committee of employees who are individuals with a disability to advise the head of the agency on matters relating to the formulation and implementation of the plan to overcome and correct any under-representation determined pursuant to Government Code Section 19234.
