What employment practices are covered by the ADA?

A. The ADA prevents employers from discrimination in employment on the basis of a disability. Employers cannot use a disability to make decisions in:

  • hiring;
  • discharge;
  • promotion;
  • compensation;
  • job training or;
  • benefits.

Specifically, the ADA prohibits:

  • not making reasonable accommodations to the known physical limitations to an otherwise qualified individual with a disability, unless such accommodations would impose “undue hardship” on the operation of the business;
  • denying equal opportunity to a qualified individual with a disability;
  • limiting, classifying or segregating any job applicant or employee because of a disability and;
  • retaliation against anyone for asserting their rights under the ADA.
