ADA: Title 1 - Employment
  • Employers of 15 or more employees must provide an equal opportunity for employment
  • “No covered entity shall discriminate against a qualified individual with a disability because of the disability of such individual in regard to job application procedures, the hiring, advancement, or discharge of employees, employee compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment”.
    • ADA, Public Law 101-336, Section 102 (a)
  • includesnot making reasonable accommodations to the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or employee, unless such covered entity can demonstrate that the accommodation would impose undue hardship on the operation of the business.
      • ADA, Public Law 101-336, Section 102 (b)(5)(A)
accommodations cont
Accommodations cont…
  • If the employee’s disability prevents performing essential functions of the job prior to the use of accommodations then the employee must disclose their disability to the employer.
  • In the event that accommodations are provided by the employer and the employee is still unable to fulfill essential job functions then he/she is considered an unqualified applicant.

  • In order to ensure equal opportunity the government created the EEOC (Equal Employment Opportunity Commission).
  • The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.
