The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 requires reasonable accommodations be made for individuals with disabilities, including those who are deaf or hard of hearing, in employment and services.

  • Title I – Employment, requires companies with 15 or more employees to provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities.
  • Title II – Public Services, requires local and state governments to make all of their services and programs accessible to individuals with disabilities.
  • Title III – Public Accommodations, guarantees people with disabilities the “full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages or accommodations of any place of public accommodation.” A public accommodation is generally a privately owned establishment that makes its services, programs or goods available to the public, such as hotels, restaurants, physicians’ offices, theatres, and so forth.

Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act Amendments of 1998 (also known as the Workforce Investment Act of 1998) requires that all Federal and US Postal Service electronic and information technology be accessible to people with disabilities, including employees and members of the public.
