What is the definition of disability under the ADA?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law in 1990. The ADA Compliance
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 make sure that people with
disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else.
The ADA gives civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities
similar to those provided to individuals on the basis of race, color,
sex, national origin, age, and religion. It guarantees equal opportunity
for individuals with disabilities in public accommodations, employment,
transportation, state and local government services, and
telecommunications. The ADA is divided into five titles (or sections)
that relate to different areas of public life.
