As you probably already know, running a business is not as simple as producing products or providing services. There are numerous laws and government Acts to which companies must comply if they employ individuals to work for them; the American with Disabilities Acts (ADA) is one of those laws.
The ADA is an act of Congress that gives certain civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities. It guarantees that Americans with a disability receive equal opportunity in regard to transportation, telecommunications, employment, public accommodations, and state and local government services. According to the ADA, more than 50 million Americans have disabilities, and should someone with a disability apply to work at your company, and/or get hired, there are a few things that you should know so that you can be prepared.
So, how can you ensure that your business is compliant with the ADA?
