The Rehabilitation Act of 1973

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is similar to the ADA. This law prohibits federal agencies, federal contractors, and some employers receiving federal funds from discriminating against people with disabilities in every aspect of employment. It also requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for qualified employees. The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces the Rehabilitation Act.
