New Webpage for U.S. Department of Justice
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has added a new webpage to ADA.gov. The webpage, entitled Fighting Discrimination in Employment Under the ADA, highlights DOJ’s work to promote equal opportunity in employment for people with disabilities. The page also provides resources on how to file a complaint of employment discrimination, the employment requirements under the ADA, and links to settlement agreements and government initiatives designed to improve employment opportunities for people with disabilities.
DOJ also posted “Breaking Down Barriers to Employment for Individuals with Disabilities” on the Justice BLOG in recognition of Disability Employment Awareness Month. The BLOG outlines DOJ’s enforcement successes in employment lawsuits and their impact on opportunities for people with disabilities.
The information provided in this message is intended solely as informal guidance, and is neither a determination of legal rights or responsibilities under the ADA, nor is it binding on any agency with enforcement responsibilities under the ADA
