A Guide to Disability Rights Laws
Know your rights: the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the comprehensive, wide-ranging civil rights law enacted in 1990, protects people with disabilities from discrimination in employment, state and local government services, public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications. The ADA defines someone with a disability as a person with a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more life activities, a person with a history of such impairments, or a person that is perceived by others to have such an impairment. A full guide to the ADA and other Disability Rights Laws is available here.
