The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a foundational piece of American Civil Rights legislation. The ADA, among other things, guarantees equal opportunity for people with disabilities to participate in the mainstream of American Life. This includes access to employment opportunities, to purchase goods and services, and to participate in state and local government programs and services.
To be protected under the ADA, an individual must be disabled, have a history or record of such impairment, or be perceived as disabled. A disability is defined by the ADA as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.
