3. Americans With Disabilities Act (1-92)

The Americans With Disabilities Act requires that employers provide opportunities for selection, testing and hiring of qualified applicants with disabilities. A disability is a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of the major life activities (i.e.: walking, seeing, speaking, hearing, etc.), a record of such impairment (i.e.: a person who has recovered from cancer) or being regarded as having such an impairment even when no limitations exist (i.e.: a person who is scarred from burns). It prohibits discrimination against individuals in employment, public service, transportation, public accommodations and telecommunications, among others. The Act states that no covered entity shall discriminate against a qualified individual with a disability because of that individual's disability in regard to job application procedures, the hiring, advancement or discharge of employees, employee compensation, job training and other terms and conditions and privilege of employment. The purpose of the Act is to extend to people with disabilities civil rights similar to those now available on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex and religion through the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title V of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
