Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the City is required to reasonably accommodate qualified individuals with a disability. The requirement applies to the application process, any pre-employment testing, interviews, and actual employment (but only if the City is informed that such accommodation is needed.) If you are disabled and require accommodation, you can request it at any time by contacting the City of Lauderhill's Human Resources Department at (954)730-3090. Some accommodations may require advanced planning. We suggest that requests are made as early as possible.

Eligible applicants must complete the Veterans Preference section of the application at the time it is submitted, and include a copy of their DD214 indicating disposition of service. Applicants must also include any additional required documents to support their level of preference eligibility.
