DisabilityInfo.gov offers free, online resources to help businesses understand the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other disability-related laws.
From the Americans with Disabilities Act to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, several disability-related Federal laws may apply to your business. For example, many employers are required to make reasonable accommodations available for employees with disabilities. And if you're a Federal contractor, you may need to take affirmative steps to hire, retain and promote qualified individuals with disabilities.
Thankfully, understanding your responsibilities under these and other employment laws doesn't have to be difficult. There are a range of free tools and resources to help you navigate the road to compliance. By visiting the "Employment" section of www.Disability.gov, an award-winning Federal government web site sponsored by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), employers can find a broad range of disability-related information and resources.
