Justice Department Honors National Disability Employment Awareness Month with New Webpage

The Department has added a new webpage to ADA.gov, Fighting Discrimination in Employment Under the ADA, and has posted Breaking Down Barriers to Employment for Individuals with Disabilities on the Justice BLOG in recognition of Disability Employment Awareness Month.   The new employment web page highlights the Department’s work to promote equal opportunity in employment for people with disabilities.  The page also provides resources on how to file a complaint of employment discrimination, the employment requirements under the ADA, links to settlement agreements and government initiatives designed to improve employment opportunities for people with disabilities.   The BLOG outlines the Department’s enforcement successes in employment lawsuits and their impact on opportunities for people with disabilities.
