Infographic: The A-Z of the ADA
Understanding how to provide employees with reasonable accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) can often be challenging for employers. Each case must be assessed individually, yet managed equitably, and accommodations should enable employees to perform their essential functions, but shouldn't cause employers undue hardship.
