Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990 and later amended with changes effective January 1, 2009. The ADA is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits, under certain circumstances, discrimination based on disability. Disability is defined by the ADA as "a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity." The determination of whether any particular condition is considered a disability is made on a case by case basis. Several major departments and agencies of the Federal government issue regulations to implement and enforce the ADA.
