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 lawyer in as little as 4 hours after initial contact.
