Myths and Facts

MYTH: The ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) forces employers to hire unqualified individuals with disabilities.

FACT: Unqualified candidates are not protected under the ADA. To be protected from discrimination in hiring, an individual must first meet all requirements for a job and be able to perform its essential functions with or without reasonable accommodations.

MYTH: Under the ADA, an employer cannot fire an employee who has a disability.

FACT: Employers can fire workers with disabilities under three conditions:

  • The termination is unrelated to the disability or
  • The employee does not meet legitimate requirements for the job, such as performance or production standards, with or without a reasonable accommodation or
  • Because of the employee's disability, he or she poses a direct threat to health or safety in the workplace. (Source: U.S. Department of Labor, Office of Disability Employment Policy)
