Chapter 4 presents an overview of the ADA, noting its structure as codified in U.S. federal statutory law. It explains the coverage of each of its four titles, the first three of which address different areas or entities (respectively, employment, state and local government entities, and places of public accommodation). It notes key aspects of the ADA that affect all of its titles, including who is an individual qualified to sue under the ADA, the ADA’s definition of disability (with numerous U.S. case law examples), matters excluded from coverage under the ADA, and the ADA’s accommodation principle.
