Know Your Rights

Many individuals with serious brain injuries suffer from permanent declines in their skills.  Despite these deficits, some of these individuals do have the ability to return to work.  The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects individuals with permanent brain injuries from being discriminated against in the workplace.  Title I of the ADA contains the laws regarding working for any entity aside from the federal government. The US Department of Justice has an excellent questions and answer booklet on Title I of the ADA.  The booklet addresses issues such as reasonable accommodations and work medical exams.
