The Disability Discrimination Law is actually an act that was passed in the United States in 1990. Although the act went into effect in 1992, the government made minor changes in 2009. Other countries, including Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, have similar laws and acts in place. The act is important because it outlines how employees with disabilities must be treated.
The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits turning an applicant down for a job because the person has a disability. Disabilities refer to both physical and mental disabilities; therefore, you cannot discriminate against a person because of alcoholism, drug addiction, or any other condition covered by the act.
Any disabled employees must have access to the same advancement, training, and compensation as all other employees. You cannot deny a promotion based on a disability or prevent an employee from attending a seminar or training exercise due to his or her disability.
According to the Disabilities Act, entrances and bathrooms must be made accessible for employees. Even if your company is not open to the public, these areas must be available for employees with disabilities. Business.com provides even more information on Disability Discrimination Law.
