5 Reasons to Celebrate the 24th Anniversary of the ADA

It was 24 years ago on July 26 that President George H.W. Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act into law. It was the year I graduated high school, a year and a half after sustaining a C4-C5 spinal cord injury.

Since that time our nation has seen a number of decisions related to the ADA and the workplace as our justice system has worked to identify a balance between the rights and responsibilities of workers with disabilities and their employers. During the same time we have seen a fairly consistent slide in the employment rate of workers with disabilities.
