The page also provides resources on how to file a complaint of employment discrimination, the employment requirements under the ADA, links to settlement agreements and government initiatives designed to improve employment opportunities for people with disabilities. The BLOG outlines the Departmentís enforcement successes in employment lawsuits and their impact on opportunities for people with disabilities.
