The ADA Training & Certification Program

The Americans with Disabilities Act, or "ADA", prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment. The ADA also restricts questions that can be asked about an individual's disability and requires employers to make certain "reasonable accommodations".The ADA Training & Certification Program

The ADA is applicable to employers with 15 or more employees. These employers are required to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others.

As a human resources representative and benefits professional, navigating the specifics of the ADA and the EEOC guidance documents can be daunting and time-consuming.

An Overview Of ADA Regulations

The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, was enacted to remedy discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, public services, public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications. There are five sections or "titles" to the ADA:

  • Title I – Prohibiting employment discrimination based upon an individual's disability
  • Title II – Prohibiting discrimination by state and local governments based upon an individual's disability
  • Title III – Prohibiting discrimination by public accommodations based upon an individual's disability
  • Title IV – Setting requirements for the telecommunications industry
  • Title V – Contains miscellaneous provisions which apply to EEOC's enforcement of Title I

Title I of the ADA requires employers with 15 or more employees to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others.

Title II of the ADA covers all activities of State and local governments regardless of the government entity's size or receipt of Federal funding. Title II requires that State and local governments give people with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from all of their programs, services, and activities (public education, employment, transportation, recreation, health care, social services, courts, voting, and town meetings).

Title III of the ADA covers businesses and nonprofit service providers that are public accommodations, privately operated entities offering certain types of courses and examinations, privately operated transportation, and commercial facilities.

Title IV addresses telephone and television access for people with hearing and speech disabilities. It requires common carriers (telephone companies) to establish interstate and intrastate telecommunications relay services (TRS) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What Are The ADA Requirements For Employers?

ADA requirements apply to employers with 15 or more employees on 20 or more calendar work weeks in the current or preceding year. ADA requirements ensure that employers covered by the ADA have to make sure those individuals with disabilities have an equal opportunity to apply for jobs and to work in jobs for which they are qualified.

A key, and often misunderstood ADA requirement is that employers must make reasonable accommodation to the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified applicant or employee with a disability, unless such an employer can demonstrate that the accommodation would impose an undue hardship on the operation of its business.

Additionally, harassing someone because of a disability is a violation of the ADA just as harassing someone because of race, sex, religion, or national origin is a violation of the Civil Rights Act. Further, it is a violation of the ADA to retaliate against an individual because he/she has have filed a complaint, or participated in the complaint process, with regards to the ADA.
