Disability Advisory Committee

The Disability Advisory Committee (DAC) is established pursuant to the requirements of California Government Code Section 19795 (b) (1), which requires all state agencies to establish a committee of employees who are individuals with a disability, or individuals with an interest in disability issues to advise the head of the agency on matters relating to the formation and implementation of a plan to overcome and correct any underrepresentation determined pursuant to California Government Code Section 19234. The DAC is to advise the Director on matters relating to California Government Code Section 19795 (b) as a means to enhance employment and promotional opportunities for individuals with disabilities and to provide a vehicle for consultation related to effective implementation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and Section 504 by the Department. Specific activities include:

  1. Serve as technical advisers to the department head and EEO/AA officer on the development, implementation and maintenance of equal employment opportunity and affirmative action programs and activities for persons/ employees with disabilities.
  2. Initiate, design, coordinate and implement projects that will improve the personnel practices and employment opportunities for persons with disabilities in order to facilitate their representation at all levels within the department.
  3. Maintain representation and participation on the State Disability Advisory Council (SDAC).
  4. Establish liaison with groups and organizations that are concerned with achieving representation and utilization of persons with disabilities in the department’s work force.
  5. Monitor issues concerning the DAC to guarantee that necessary actions occur within reasonable time frames.
  6. Assist and advise staff on issues relating to the ADA.
