The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for persons with disabilities in employment. It obligates employers with 15 or more employers (or fewer in many states, such as those in Region 10) to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified employees with disabilities. Providing reasonable accommodations is mutually beneficial for employer and employee. An accommodation allows the individual with a disability to do their best work, to their fullest potential, and the employer gets the best worker, all by the simple provision of an accommodation.

Information for employees with disabilities may be found in our Employer Toolkit.
