What is an employer allowed to do under the ADA?
For an employer to be considered covered under the Americans With Disabilities Act they must have 15 or more employees. Under the ADA, a disabled employee is one who meets a certain criteria including having a physical or mental disability that substantially limits major life activities. The EEOC has embraced a broad definition of disability, which has had the practical effect of turning all impairments into disabilities. While there is no exhaustive list of disabilities, the ADA requires that employers engage in individualized assessments of each disabled employee or applicant. This video reviews what is required of the employer under the ADA and what an employer is allowed to do.
