A disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of a person's major life activities. Employers often struggle with how to respond and cope with workers with disabilities, but learning the basics about etiquette, as well as rights and responsibilities as outlined by the American Disabilities Act, or ADA, can make the situation better for everyone. This course describes the ADA, the benefits of hiring workers with disabilities, types of disabilities, reasonable accommodations, interviewing and etiquette, as well as how to prevent and deal with discrimination.
