Employer Responsibilities Under the ADA

The goal of the Americans with Disabilities Act is not to give individuals with disabilities an unfair advantage; it is to provide equal access and opportunities. Employers do not have to hire someone with a disability over a more qualified person. Employers do need to make sure that those with disabilities have an equal opportunity to apply for and work in jobs for which they are qualified; have equal access to the privileges and benefits offered to other employers (such as health insurance and training); are not harassed because of a disability; and have equal opportunities for promotion.
