It just got easier to comply with the provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Specially designed to serve the practical needs of small business owners and managers who can't afford high-powered lawyers to interpret the ADA's provisions, this penetrating new handbook shows exactly how to meet the ADA's guidelines on hiring and employing--easily and economically. Complying with the ADA begins by discussing key provisions, focusing on who is protected, and specifying the many employment areas where discrimination is prohibited. This includes: job application procedures, compensation, and sick leave. 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:
* 15 steps that ensure full compliance and enable you to develop a model company policy
* Proven strategies that help you meet the ADA's guidelines in every major area--from interviewing and testing, to routine management
* Advice on economically making the workplace accessible under the ADA's sweeping concept of "reasonable accommodation"
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. Complying with the ADA will do more than just alert you to your liability. It will assist you in capitalizing on the potential of the qualified group of "disabled" Americans. With this book as your guide, you'll see that complying with the ADA is more than obeying the law--it's good business.

While advocacy groups hail the Americans with Disabilities Act ADA as the "Emancipation Proclamation of the Disabled, " many small business owners fear the immediate legal and economic implications for their business. Now comes a guide to help small businesses wade through the legal jargon and comply with the ADA.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), a federal mandate that imposes penalties for discriminating against the disabled, was signed into law. This book will guide businesses with 15 or more employees by 1994 through the legal and economic implications of ADA. The guide covers the necessary legal information on hiring and employing the disabled as well as construction requirements. Helpful appendixes include lists of organizations and publications, as well as reprints of Title I and III of the ADA. Allen, a top employment lawyer, author, and professional negotiator, also writes a nationally syndicated column, ``Placements and the Law.'' This invaluable reference provides down-to-earth advice on the easiest, most economical way to comply with ADA. Highly recommended for all public and academic libraries.
