Americans with Disabilities Act Turns 25
July 26 marked the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a law designed to ensure the civil rights of people with disabilities.
SHRM played an important role in the development of the ADA and was a key architect of the ADA Amendments Act enacted into law in 2007, making sure the law worked for employers while protecting employees with disabilities. In addition, SHRM continues to work with the Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, which has many resources for employers, to promote hiring and workplace accommodation.
As a result, Henry G. “Hank” Jackson, SHRM President and CEO; Bob Carr, SHRM senior vice president for Membership, Marketing & External Affairs; and members of the Government Affairs staff were invited to a White House reception in recognition of the important role the ADA has played in the lives of individuals with disabilities in many aspects of life, including employment. In a related development, last week SHRM hosted a #NextChat facilitated by SHRM member and attorney Jonathan Segal and EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum examining 25 years of the ADA.
