How the ADA Impacts Employers
The Americans with Disabilities Act sets out certain legal obligations employers must follow. Employment attorneys can help you navigate your rights and responsibilities.
Understand Your Obligations Under the ADA
As an employer, it’s important for you to be aware of how the ADA impacts your hiring process and the operation of your business. Here are the basics.
• Title I of the ADA applies to private employers with 15 or more employees
• You cannot discriminate against job candidates based on defined disabilities
• You must make reasonable work accommodations for qualified applicants
If you have a general question about ADA compliance or you have a current legal situation with which you need help, join LegalShield today and you can be on the phone with an employment attorney in as little as 4 hours.
Make Sure You’re Following the Law
Creating ADA compliant hiring processes, employee policy documentation and making ADA compliant job accommodations can be overwhelming.
• What qualifies as a disability under the ADA?
• What constitutes a reasonable accommodation in my line of work?
• What is SSI and how does it relate to the ADA?
