Moving from campus to career as a veteran with a disability
Veterans with mental or physical impairments have rights under the ADA.
Anyone who has a disability that meets the ADA definition of disability has rights under the ADA. The ADA was amended in 2008 to cover more health conditions that qualify as disabilities. These rights protect from disability discrimination in employment and other areas of life.
Though there are also other ways the ADA protects against disability discrimination in employment, the ADA protections concerning disability disclosure and job accommodations are the main protections.
The decision to not disclose a disability during hiring is not a lie. It is a legally protected choice.
Any applicant or worker with a disability has a right to an accommodation under the ADA.
