The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a landmark civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life. It gives millions of individuals with disabilities equal access to all public and private places, from employment to government, telecommunications, and businesses.
Title III of the ADA addresses businesses specifically. It prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in places of public accommodation, which includes restaurants, private schools, sports stadiums, office buildings, and more. Businesses are required to make “reasonable modifications” to serve people with disabilities.
