Americans with Disabilities

What is the Americans with Disabilities Act?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects individuals with disabilities from discrimination. It requires that an employer provides \”reasonable accommodation\” if needed to perform \”essential functions\” of a job. The ADA makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a qualified individual because of a disability in any employment practices such as recruiting, firing, hiring, pay, promotions, and all other employment-related activities.
