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 lawyer in as little as 4 hours after initial contact.

Make Sure You’re Following ADA Standards

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?
