Community Legal Assistance: Disability & Benefits

Disability Law

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, housing, education, and access to public services. The ADA further requires that reasonable accommodation be made so as to provide individuals with disabilities equal opportunities. Other statutes prohibiting discrimination against individuals with disabilities include the Fair Housing Act, Rehabilitation Act, and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. States may pass disability statutes so long as they are consistent with the ADA.
