ADA Defense & Compliance Attorneys

The Americans with Disabilities Act sets out certain legal obligations employers must follow to accommodation claims, the key is to be proactive not reactive when it comes to ADA cases.

Understand Your Obligations Under ADA Law

As an employer, it’s important to understand how the ADA impacts your hiring process and the operation of your business. Here are the business owner basics.

• Title I of the ADA applies to private employers with 15 or more employees
• Employers are prohibited from discriminating against people with disabilities in hiring, paying, promoting, or training
• You must make reasonable work accommodations for qualified individuals with disabilities

If you have a general question about ADA compliance, are facing an employee claim, or have been sued, join LegalShield today and you can be on the phone with a provider attorney in as little as 4 hours.


Make Sure You’re Following ADA Standard

Creating ADA-compliant hiring processes, employee policy documentation, and making ADA-compliant job accommodations can seem overwhelming, and you may have questions.

• Is my business covered by the employment provisions of the ADA?
• What qualifies as a disability under the ADA?
• What constitutes reasonable accommodation in my line of work?
• What is protected under the ADA?

The prompt initial and return phone calls have sealed the deal for me. Kudos to [my Provider Lawyer] who is an excellent attorney; professional and patient. Thank you and give her a bonus!
