Disability accommodation

The Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) provides assistance to qualified individuals with disabilities to give them the equal opportunity to use and to participate in DLSE's programs and services.

Accommodations or assistance for persons with disabilities are available upon request. Any person with a disability participating in DLSE's programs or services may request as an accommodation an auxiliary aid or service, or a reasonable modification of policies or procedures.

Accommodations include, but are not limited to devices to assist those with hearing impairments, computerized translation, a sign language interpreter, documents in large print, in Braille or on computer disk, and audio cassette recording as needed. Accommodation requests should be made as soon as possible using the following form (acrobat Pdf / ms word Doc). Requests for an assistive listening device or computerized translation services should be made no later than five (5) days before the hearing. Failure to give us enough notice to arrange for your accommodation may result in having to reschedule the event.

Individuals requesting accommodation should contact the district office disability accommodation coordinator at the Labor Standards Enforcement Office where the individual's case is being heard. Click here for a list of the addresses of the local district offices. Phone numbers for the disability accommodation coordinators for each office may be found on the brochure linked below.

Individuals requesting disabilities may also contact the statewide disability accommodation coordinator at 1-866-760-0144 (toll free). The Statewide Coordinator can also be reached through the California Relay Service, by dialing 711 or 1-800-735-2929 (TTY) or 1-800-855-3000 (TTY-Spanish).
