According to the United States Department of Labor, "The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a landmark federal law that protects the rights of people with disabilities by eliminating barriers to their participation in many aspects of living and working in America." If you suffer from a handicap or disability, neither a current nor a future employer can discriminate against you because of that handicap or disability. This includes both during tenure of employment and the hiring process. Also, in many cases, your employer is required to make reasonable accomodations for you at work. If you have questions about the ADA law and how it may apply to your situation, please contact us itoday.
