Who Enforces the Americans with Disabilities Act?

Disability discrimination remains an issue in the United States. This is despite the many laws in place to prevent such activity.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is meant to prohibit discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, as well as other activities.

Just because employers are aware of the ADA does not mean they will follow the law. This is why many agencies often times have to step in to provide assistance to employees.

The agencies that enforce the ADA include:

  • The Department of Labor
  • The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
  • The Department of Transportation
  • The Federal Communications Commission (FCC)
  • The Department of Justice
