The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination against disabled workers or job applicants and covers all private employers with 15 or more employees and state and local governments, regardless of the number of employees. The ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA), which was signed into law in 2008, expands the interpretation of the ADA’s coverage and the definition of what disabilities are covered under it.
