The ADA & Aging Americans
This webinar will discuss the intersection of America’s aging population and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). As the American population ages and more individuals join the ranks of senior citizens, more Americans inevitably will have disabilities, and in turn, benefit from this landmark civil rights law. Title I of the ADA, which covers employment, requires that reasonable accommodations be made available to qualified senior workers with disabilities. Titles II and III of the ADA mandate access to programs, goods, and services by people with disabilities, including requirements that largely benefit older American’s as they participate in community life. We will review how these various ADA regulations benefit an aging population by discussing several key areas of the law that directly impact older Americans.
