In 1990, the Congress of the United States passed a set of laws that changed the way businesses accommodated Americans with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is designed to ensure that employees with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities have reasonable accommodations to be productive members of the workforce. Under the law, employers may face penalties for violating the rights of workers with disabilities or for not having accommodations that are deemed reasonable.
Businesses of all sizes increasingly face claims alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Navigating and understanding the laws of the ADA can be elusive due to the subjectivity nature of reasonability, and the definition of disability as defined by the ADA.
