What Is The ADA Americans With Disabilities Act

What is the ADA and what is a reasonable accommodation under the ADA? ADA stands for Americans with Disabilities Act, and a reasonable accommodations simply means a change or assistance given to you with respect to your position that will allow you to perform all the essential functions of your job.

If you have been mistreated in the workplace due to a disability, you have suffered from disability discrimination. The federal American with Disabilities Act and the New York Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination of this kind. Under the laws, your employer cannot discriminate against you based on a real or perceived disability and also must make reasonable accommodations to allow you to perform your job functions.
