What are the FMLA and ADA?
The Family Medical Leave Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act are a compilation of laws that prohibit businesses and organizations from promoting or engaging in disability discrimination in employment. With ADA and ACRA, employers are prohibited from discriminating against qualified disabled candidates, so long as they can perform the duties of the job when reasonable accommodations are made. The FMLA requires employers that meet certain requirements to offer employees up to three months of unpaid leave for a birth, an adoption, and other specific other family-related issues.
Examples Of Disability Discrimination In The Workplace:
- Assigning a duty to a disabled person that they cannot do
- Failing to provide a nearby parking space for a disabled worker
- Failing to provide a reasonable accommodation such as a piece of equipment that is needed
- Changing the position of a disabled person to a non-public facing role
- Failing to allow for breaks to cope with a disability
