The purpose of the DFEH Language Access Implementation Plan (LAP) is to establish effective language access guidelines consistent with federal and state civil rights laws. The LAP aims to ensure that language and communication access is linguistically and culturally appropriate and provides equal and meaningful access to all in California. The LAP also outlines information, requirements, and action items for DFEH to provide equal and meaningful access for LEP individuals, including people with disabilities, in their primary language and in accessible formats.
