The Disability Rights Center of Arkansas sent out a statement Friday afternoon calling the school district’s refusal to allow three students to continue attending school“unlawful”, saying the students were being denied the right to attend school until documentation proves they are not HIV-positive.This action, if it's being reported correctly, pretty clearly violates the ADA.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Amendments Act of 2008 was signed into law on September 25, 2008 and becomes effective January 1, 2009.

Because this law makes several significant changes, including changes to the definition of the term "disability," the EEOC will be evaluating the impact of these changes on this document and other publications.

See the list of specific changes to the ADA made by the ADA Amendments Act.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal civil rights law that applies to people with disabilities and protects them from discrimination.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a Federal government agency, enforces the sections of the ADA that prohibit employment discrimination.

This Guide explains these ADA employment rules for the food service industry.

The ADA is important to food service employers and employees.

Food service employers must avoid discriminating against people with disabilities while obeying strict public health rules. To find the EEOC office near you, check the EEOC web site at The employment provisions of the ADA apply to businesses that have 15 or more employees on the payroll. If you have several sites that are all owned, operated, and managed by your business, then you must count all the employees at these sites.

Food service workers with disabilities have rights under the ADA when applying for jobs or when working for a restaurant, cafeteria, or other food service employer. The Americans with Disabilities Act is a Federal law that prohibits most employers from discriminating against a qualified person who has a disability. The EEOC has more than 50 offices in cities throughout the U. You also can call the EEOC at 1-800-669-4000/1-800-669-6820 (TTY). But, if you have different sites that are not owned, operated, or managed by the same business, then you have to count all the employees only if your business is an "integrated enterprise." See Appendix E for information about "integrated enterprises." 3. The ADA protects a person with a disability who is qualified for the job. The ADA has a legal test to decide if a person has a condition that is severe enough to be an ADA disability.
