What is the ADA and what are its requirements?

The 1990 Americans with Disabilities Act, or the ADA, prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities. This Act requires employers to make reasonable accommodations so that deaf individuals have equal access to employment.  Interpreting services allow deaf individuals to have full access to communication. [Small businesses with either $1,000,000 or less in revenue or 30 or fewer full-time employees may take a tax credit of up to $5,000 annually for the cost of providing reasonable accommodations such as sign language interpreter].
