Americans with Disabilities Act
Congress passed The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 1990 in order to give civil rights protections to individuals with disabilities similar to those prohibiting discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, national origin, age, and religion. The new edition of the Americans withDisabilities Act Legal Almanac examines the ADA and discusses the rights disabled individuals are entitled to under the statute. The areas governed by the ADA are also explored, including employment, transportation, public accommodations, state and local government services, and telecommunications.This almanac also gives a brief overview of legislation designed to protect the disabled in areas not covered by the ADA. The Appendices provide an overview of the Act itself, including specific areas of the Act outlining common instances where the ADA is most applied, resource directories and complaint forms, as well as some examples of cases. The Glossary contains definitions of many of the terms used throughoutthe almanac.
