Americans With Disabilities Act

The ADA prohibits private employers, state and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment. The ADA covers employers with 15 or more employees. To learn more about what constitutes a disability and what accommodations employers are required to provide to workers with disabilities, check out the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s ADA page here.  To get an idea of the full scope of ADA protections beyond the employment context, visit the ADA information page here.
