Title I Employment

Title I of the ADA prohibits discrimination in employment. Private employers with 15 or more employees and public (state and local governments) employers of any size are covered by Title I of the ADA. The entire process of employment is covered from application procedures, interviewing, hiring to advancement, compensation and other benefits of employment. A person is considered disabled under the ADA if they meet one of the following criteria:


1) Have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity….or…

2) Have a record of a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity…or…

3) Are regarded as someone with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity.
Someone is considered a qualified applicant or employee if they with or without reasonable accommodation can perform the essential functions of the job. Reasonable accommodations are any kind of reasonable change to the work schedule, work environment, equipment, or work itself that enables a person with a disability to do a job. Essential functions are those tasks of a particular job that if taken away, fundamentally change the job. Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations to a qualified person with a known disability unless to do so would cause them an undue hardship. An undue hardship means that providing the accommodation would cause considerable difficulty or expense to the employer. Reasonable Accommodations, Essential Functions and Undue Hardship are all determined on a case by case basis and may be different depending on the employee, the employer and the circumstances.

Title II

State and Local Government

Services


Title II of the ADA addresses all activities, services and programs of state and local governments of any size.

The basic requirements of Title II are that:

1) State and local governments can’t refuse to allow a person with a disability to participate in any service, program or activity just because they are disabled.

2) State and local governments must offer services and programs in an integrated setting unless a separate program is needed to provide equal opportunity.

3) State and local governments can’t have eligibility standards that tend to deny eligibility to people with disabilities unless required for the service, program or activity.

4) State and local governments have to modify policies, practices and procedures in reasonable ways to provide people with disabilities access to services, programs and activities unless such modification would cause a fundamental alteration in the program or an undue burden. A fundamental alteration would be a change that alters the very nature of the program or prevents others from being able to benefit from the program because of the change. An undue burden would be a significant difficulty or expense.

5) State and local governments have to provide auxiliary aids and services in order to ensure effective communication unless it causes an undue burden or fundamental alteration.


  1. State and local governments can’t charge people with disabilities to provide equal access. This means

That government can’t charge for auxiliary aids, or accessibility features in programs and services.

7) State and local government programs and services when viewed in their entirety must be accessible and useable by people with disabilities.

Complaints under Title II may be covered by the Department of Justice or by another federal department covering like services.

Title III

Public Accommodations
Title III of the ADA addresses private businesses that offer goods or services to the public. This includes but is not limited to restaurants, stores, hotels, theaters, gas stations, amusement parks, privately owned museums, laundry mats, bowling alleys, fitness clubs, apartment leasing offices, medical and dental offices, daycare providers, and any other business where goods or services are bought and sold. Churches are not covered by Title III, nor are true private membership clubs.

Public Accommodations cannot refuse a customer access to goods and services simply because of their disability. Public accommodations must provide their services and goods in integrated settings, unless equal opportunity cannot be provided without special accommodations. Public accommodations must get rid of unnecessary eligibility standards that rule out people with disabilities. Businesses must modify policies, procedures and practices in reasonable ways so that people with disabilities have access to their goods and services unless modifications would fundamentally change the services provided or modification would cause a significant difficulty or expense for the business. Businesses need to undertake readily achievable barrier removal, making any “cheap and easy” changes to remove barriers and increase access and accessible features must be maintained.


If barriers can’t be readily removed, then the business must find other ways to provide service to customers with disabilities. If communication barriers exist, a business must provide auxiliary aids to allow effective communication unless to do so causes an undue burden or fundamental alteration.

Title IV Telecommunications


Title IV of the ADA requires that states provide Telephone Relay Services so that individuals with communication disabilities can communicate with hearing individuals. Operators relay calls between TTY user and telephone user. There are no charges for the service and no limitations can be made on the type of call, length of call or number of calls made. Relayed calls cannot be altered by the operator. The rate of long distance calls through the Relay cannot be more than a regular call with the same points of origination and destination. Title IV also requires that closed captioning be provided for federally funded programs. With the Telecommunications Act of 1996, requires emergency broadcasts to be accessible for people with disabilities (weather emergencies/terrorist attacks). Closed captioning and emergency information cannot be obscured by “crawlers” on the screen.

The Federal Communications Commission is responsible for discrimination complaints under Title IV.

Title V Miscellaneous



Title V of the ADA covers a variety of subjects not otherwise dealt with in the law, many of which crosscut several titles. Title V addresses the relationship of the ADA to other laws including the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Architectural Barriers Act and states that the ADA doesn’t undermine other state or federal laws requiring greater accessibility. This section indicates that states are not immune from lawsuits under the ADA. Title V also assigns the creation of physical accessibility standards to the Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board (or US Access Board) and assigns technical assistance duties to all federal agencies affected. The Title V section clarifies that the US Congress is covered by the ADA, as well.
