Access Requirements for the Disabled
What is the Law? The ADA has provisions relating to ‘private entities’. This is the law relating to public accommodations as it pertains to any entity that is not state or government owned. In essence it provides requirements relating to access to any building or space which allows entry to members of the public. This law doesn’t cover private houses or apartments unless there is part of it that is accessed by the public, for example, a chiropodist practising from home. Similarly ‘private clubs’ are, in many cases, not covered.
Employers are not allowed by law to discriminate against people with disabilities. When employers want to recruit people to join them, they are forbidden from excluding any disabled person. Title I of the ADA provides rules for employers who have fifteen or more full or part time employees. However, this doesn’t mean that the disabled person is always the best person for the job, or that if the disabled person doesn’t get the job it’s because of their disability.
