LAWS AND REGULATIONS
The Americans with Disability Act (ADA) is a civil rights law designed to remove barriers which prevent qualified individuals with disabilities from enjoying the same employment opportunities that are available to persons with disabilities. The law is regulated and enforced by the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
California statute expands qualified disabilities as those which include mental or physical conditions which “limit” a major life activity, rather than “substantially limits.” The Department of Fair Employment and Housing (FEHA) regulates the California statute regarding disabilities.
