The Americans with Disabilities Act, signed into law over thirty years ago, was designed to be transformational. Today, it significantly benefits workers and job applicants by ensuring civil rights recognition, improving physical work environments, and integrating employees with visible and invisible disabilities into the workforce.

However, the ADA can be challenging for employers to navigate, leading to frequent compliance issues. Missteps often attract scrutiny from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and result in numerous lawsuits. Common claims include failure to engage in the interactive process, failure to accommodate, discriminatory hiring and promotion practices, harassment, retaliation, and digital accessibility issues.
