Individuals with disabilities are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and by state laws in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Under the ADA employers are: prohibited from firing employees or refusing to hire employees based on disability; prohibited from refusing to promote employees due to a disability; and required to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled people.
