ADA_Fundamentals.jpgThe Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a civil rights law that was established in 1990 that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life. 

As an employer, do you know what's considered a disability under the ADA as far as employment is concerned?

Even if you do, are you certain you're offering the same employment rights and opportunities to everyone in the workplace, despite disabilities, every time, without error? This includes recruiting, promotions, pay, benefits, training, and much more. 

Abiding by this law is essential, especially Title 1 (the employment section) as there are serious legal consequences for violating the ADA, not to mention negative aftereffects on your company's reputation.
