What is Title I of the ADA?
Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a section of the act that prohibits discrimination in employment. Title I requires that employers provide reasonable accommodations to qualified candidates and employees with disabilities.
Under Title I, an employer with 15 or more employees is considered a covered entity that must comply with the title’s regulations. It is important to note that individual states, such as New York and New Jersey, have state laws that mirror Title I but require only one employee to be covered under state employment protections.
