Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
The Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law in 1990 and amended in 2008, and offers broad protection to disabled individuals in the workplace, in public spaces, and in academia. Among the most significant is the broad scope of protection, by expanding the definition of the term “disability.” Any employer with 15 or more employees on their payroll for 20 or more calendar weeks must comply with the ADA, including private employers, state and local government, labor organizations, and labor management committees.
