What is the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)?

Discuss Your Case with Our Carmel Education Law Lawyers

It is illegal to discriminate against someone because of a disability. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a “qualified individual” cannot be discriminated against on the basis of a disability or subjected to harassment or retaliation for filing a complaint of discrimination.

In order to be considered disabled under the ADA, you must have a condition which substantially limits a major life activity. The ADA also protects people against discrimination based on stereotypes even if the individual is not legally disabled. This is designed to protect a person who, because of a medical condition or something in his or her medical history, is perceived as being disabled even though he or she isn’t. The ADA requires reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities.
