What is Disability Discrimination?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) states “no covered entity shall discriminate against a qualified individual on the basis of disability in regard to job application procedures, the hiring, advancement, or discharge of employees, employee compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment.”
The goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is to eliminate discrimination against individuals with disabilities.
Examples of disability discrimination:
- Dismissing an employee for disability-related absences
- Failure to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate the disability
- Failure to consider suitable alternative employment
- Failure to make reasonable adjustments to bonus criteria
