Synopsis: The ADA can be complicated, but we've simplified the major points of the law for you.  The ADA was passed as the civil rights bill for people with disabilities.  Negative misperceptions about disabled workers made it very difficult for them to find meaningful work.  As a result, the country lost the benefit of all the skills and knowledge disabled employees possess.  With the ADA, lawmakers sought to right that wrong.  The ADA makes it illegal to discriminate against people with disabilities in hiring practices and on the job and allows them to bring their talents into the workplace.  This improves the economy as a whole and gives everyone with a disability the chance they deserve.
