The Americans with Disabilities Act is a United States federal statute enacted in 1990 to prevent discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, public accomodation, transportation, communications and governmental activities. The Act defines a covered disability as those mental or physical impairments that substantially interfere with one or more major life activities. Five different federal agencies are responsible for enforcing the ADA: Department of Labor, Department of Justice, Federal Communications Commission, Department of Transportation and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
