It is more recent than we think. The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits private employers, state and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment. This law (covering employers with 15 or more employees) is designed to remove barriers that prevent qualified individuals with disabilities from enjoying the same employment opportunities that are available to persons without disabilities. When an individual’s disability creates a barrier to employment opportunities, this law requires employers to consider whether a reasonable accommodation could remove the barrier. 25 Golden Gate Chapter August 2011
