Online ADA Training Course

Americans with Disabilities TrainingThe Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted in 1990 with the goal of ending discrimination against individuals with disabilities. Title I of the ADA prohibits employers from discriminating in all aspects of the employment relationship — application, testing, medical examinations, hiring, training, assignments, evaluations, disciplinary actions, promotions, layoffs and terminations, as well as compensation, leave and other benefits. The ADA was revised substantially in 2009.

Since the Americans with Disabilities law went into effect, enforcement by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has resulted in payments of more than $300 million by businesses to more than 20,000 individuals. Recent ADA cases resulting in punitive-damage awards up to $13 million make the importance of understanding and complying with the ADA clear.
