Introduction

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by George H.W. Bush in July 1990.  The Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public.  The purpose of the law is to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. 

Disability accommodation is an important and visible aspect of ethical business practices.   Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act will ensure your organization is operating in an ethical manner.

Non-compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) can prove to be costly for employers.  Penalties in excess of hundreds of thousands of dollars for non-compliance put employers at substantial risk.  Can your organization afford to be non-compliant?
