Americans with Disabilities Act: Public Entities Must Comply

More than 55 million people in America have physical or mental disabilities that substantially limit a major life activity. In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) became law to help protect this population and ensure they receive the same rights as everyone else.

This law was especially important for the public sector because it provided guidelines to ensure no program, service or activity discriminates against or excludes anyone based on disability.
