What is the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law on July 26, 1990 and was amended most recently in January 2009. The ADA is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability. Disability is defined as "a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity," such as walking, seeing, hearing, breathing, thinking, socializing, and working, for example. The ADA includes a list of impairments to major life activities. For more information about the Americans with Disabilities Act, please visit the Rocky Mountain ADA Center.
