The ADA Training & Certification Program
The Americans with Disabilities Act, or "ADA", prohibits discrimination in recruitment, hiring, training, promotions, pay, social activities, and other privileges of employment. The ADA also restricts questions that can be asked about an individual's
disability and requires employers to make certain "reasonable accommodations".
The ADA is applicable to employers with 15 or more employees. These employers are required to provide qualified individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities available to others.
As a human resources representative and benefits professional, navigating the specifics of the ADA and the EEOC guidance documents can be daunting and time-consuming.
