The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)


            The ADA aims at protecting people with disabilities from oppression by their employers or potential employers. People who feel oppressed by their employers must prove that they suffer disabilities that affect their ability to perform ordinary tasks for them to qualify protection. Once the employer is found to have infringed on the rights of a person with a disability regarding employment, the employer is liable for punitive charges to compensate the disabled person. This paper seeks to establish the requirements for a person with a disability to qualify protection by the ADA, and determining whether Titan’s case against Chalfant qualifies for punitive damages.
