Complying with the ADA begins by discussing key provisions, focusing on who is protected, and specifying the many employment areas where discrimination is prohibited.

The book provides real-world examples of actions by owners and managers that illustrate precisely what acts are prohibited, then it shows, step-by-step, how to comply with the law while meeting bottom-line objectives. Using this book, you’ll learn the way to satisfy the ADA’s provisions and your objectives, including:

Along the way, Complying with the ADA provides you with thorough checklists of do’s and don’ts, sample job applications, model job descriptions, resource lists, and dozens of other practical ideas.
