The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a far-reaching law that prohibits discrimination in large and small employment settings against qualified individuals with physical or mental disabilities. It will dramatically affect a company's approach to job applications, hiring, advancement, discharge, compensation, training and any other terms, conditions and privileges of employment. This volume explains precisely how the Act will affect companies, analyzing the law in layman's terms and offering guidance on how to comply with its provisions. It looks at each section of the Act from the perspective of the individual in charge of developing and implementing the necessary programmes and policies to ensure compliance. The book provides legal interpretation in non-legal language, suggests the proper steps toward full compliance, and includes a sample programme in action. In addition, the full text of the Act is included.
