Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

Before the Americans with Disabilities Act became law, people with disabilities had no protection in the workplace.

With the passage in 1990 of ADA, disabled people were given employment rights. Employment lawyer Robert M. Liechty, PC, a Denver law firm  represents both sides in ADA cases.
Who Is Covered by ADA?

  • Anyone with a limiting mental or physical disability
  • Anyone who has a history of impairment
  • Anyone who is regarded as having such an impairment
The law specifically prohibits employers, state and local governments, employment agencies, and labor unions from discriminating against qualified disabled individuals in applying, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, training and any other aspect of employment.
Disability Defined
The World Health Organization defines disability as a restriction or lack of ability to perform an activity in the manner or within the range considered normal for a human being.

Requirements of Both Employers and Employees

Employers are required to make “reasonable accommodations” for persons with disabilities. This may mean making facilities more accessible, restructuring the job, or acquiring equipment to facilitate work. Employees must inform employers of their disability, usually requiring a letter from a physician describing defining the limitations of the disability.
