OVERVIEW
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law by George H.W. Bush in July 1990. The Act is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including jobs, schools, transportation, and all public and private places that are open to the general public. The purpose of the law is to ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion.
Disability accommodation is an important and visible aspect of ethical business practices. ADA compliance will ensure your organization is operating in an ethical manner.
