Dickey, Katherine Dooley; Satcher, Jamie F.
The Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into law July 26, 1990, has been heralded across the nation as a triumph for the 43 million Americans with disabilities. This document provides a guide to Title 1 of this Act, which forbids employers with 15 or more employees from discriminating against a qualified individual with a disability in job application procedures; the hiring, advancement, or discharge of employees; employee compensation; job training; and other terms, conditions, and privileges. A list of discriminatory acts by employers under the law is provided, along with regulations regarding physical examinations, reasonable accommodation, and undue hardship. Enforcement is in accordance with the powers, remedies, and procedures set forth in the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and these regulations are enforced by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. A question-and-answer section concludes the document, and resources are included. (TE)
