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.
