Title VI Non Discrimination Policy
The Title VI Act of 1964, as amended, helps to ensure anti-discrimination is enforced throughout the work undertaken by all recipients of federal funding. The County of Union, including Union County Paratransit, has implemented procedures to prohibit discrimination on the grounds of race, color, sex, age, national origin, religion, disabling condition, or being included within minority populations and/or low income populations, as well as, ensure meaningful access to programs and activities by persons with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). Title VI also prohibits exclusion from participation, denial of benefits to, or others subject to discrimination under any program or activity administered by the County of Union.
Any person who believes they have been aggrieved by an unlawful discrimination practice under Title VI has a right to file a formal complaint with the County of Union. Any such complaint must be in writing and filed with the County of Union. The complaint must be filed within one hundred eighty (180) days following the date of the alleged discriminatory occurrence.
