ADA
USA
A federal law prohibiting employment discrimination against qualified individuals on the basis of disability (42 U.S.C. §§ 12101-12113). The ADA specifically prohibits discrimination in the terms and conditions of employment, including:
• Application procedures.
• Hiring.
• Termination of employment.
• Compensation.
• Job training.
• Retaliation (for more information on retaliation, see Practice Note: Retaliation (www.practicallaw.com/5-501-1430)).
• Harassment (for more information on harassment, see Standard Document, Anti-Harassment Policy: General Drafting Note (www.practicallaw.com/7-501-6926) and Practice Note, Harassment (www.practicallaw.com/9-502-7844)).
The ADA is also the primary federal law governing:
• Reasonable accommodations of disabilities in the workplace.
• Pre-employment examinations.
The ADA is enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The general rule is that the ADA applies to private employers with 15 or more employees.
For more information on employer coverage under the ADA, see the EEOC website .
