Federal Employers

The Rehabilitation Act prohibits discrimination on the basic of disability in federal employment, and in the employment practices of recipients of federal funds and many federal contractors. Although the complaint and administrative procedures differ slightly under the Rehab Act, the basic provisions and requirements are the same as those of the ADA. Court rulings in ADA cases and guidance materials on the ADA can be instructive in applying the provisions of the Rehabilitation Act. Below are publications and resources to help federal employers understand their rights and responsibilities and maximize the potential of their workforce.
