REFLECTIONS ON THE 30TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE AMERICANS WITH DISABILITIES ACT (ADA)

From the Job Accommodation Network (JAN): For More Info, Go Here…

As one of the most significant civil rights statutes of all time, to me, the ADA embodies hope, opportunity, and…guard rails. The enactment of the employment provisions of the law, Title I of the ADA, offered individuals with disabilities hope that the future of work in America would one day include people of all abilities, skills, and talents. The law created a path, with fewer bumps and more bridges, that leads individuals with disabilities to better opportunities to gain work experience, to share their knowledge and expertise, and to contribute to the workplace in invaluable ways. Still, thirty years after enactment, the ADA is not that smooth winding road we need it to be. But, the guard rails of the law help to keep us on the right path toward equal employment opportunities for all workers.
