How is a disability defined?
A disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more of a person's major life activities.

What is the primary purpose of the Americans with Disabilities Act? (ADA)
The primary purpose of the ADA is to ensure that people with disabilities have the same opportunities as everyone else, including public accommodations, transportation, state and local government services, telecommunications, and employment.

What are some benefits of hiring a worker with a disability?
There are several benefits to hiring a worker with a disability, such as the increased ability to think creatively, solve problems, and adapt to changing situations that people who have never had to deal with any type of disability might have not experienced.

What is a reasonable accommodation?
A reasonable accommodation is any change or adjustment to a job or work environment that permits a qualified applicant or employee with a disability to participate in the job application process, to perform the essential functions of a job, or to enjoy benefits and privileges of employment equal to those enjoyed by employees without disabilities.

Are employers required to make accommodations to employees with disabilities even if it costly?
Employers are not required to make accommodations if it causes what is referred to as undue hardship, which is an accommodation that would be unduly costly, extensive, substantial, or disruptive or would fundamentally alter the nature or operation of a business.
