ADA Protection for Workers with Disabilities

Discrimination based on a worker's disability is prohibited in any aspect of employment, including hiring, firing, pay, training, promotions, and any other conditions of employment. It is also against the law to discriminate against someone for their relationship to a disabled person, such as the spouse of a disabled individual.

A person may be considered disabled if he or she:

  • Has a physical or mental condition that causes a substantial limitation in major activities, such as sight, hearing, walking, speaking, or learning

  • Has a history of a disability, such as cancer in remission

  • Has a physical or mental impairment that is not transitory

Accommodations for Workers with Disabilities

In addition to prohibiting workplace discrimination, the law requires employers to make reasonable accommodations to allow the employee to perform the functions of the job, as long as the accommodations do not result in an undue burden to the employer, such as extremely high costs or disruptions to the workplace.

This would include any change to the work environment needed to help a person with a disability perform the duties necessary for employment. Examples of reasonable accommodations may include making the place of employment wheelchair accessible or providing a reader for a visually impaired employee.
