The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991 ("ADA")

The ADA prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in employment, public accommodation, and public services, including public transportation. 

 

Almost all entities with 15 or more employees are covered by the ADA. 

 

Employers with 15 or more employees, governmental agencies, and labor associations are prohibited from

  • Discriminating against applicants or employees because of their disability, and

  • Are required to provide “reasonable accommodations” to permit the diabled to work and advance in careers.
