Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits companies with more than 15 employees from discriminating against job applicants or employees with disabilities. Title 1 of the ADA prohibits discrimination in all aspects of employment, including hiring, firing, compensation, promotions, training and benefits. Applicants cannot be refused, and employees cannot be segregated, harassed, or fired due to a disability. Furthermore, companies must offer reasonable accommodation for the needs of disabled applicants and employees.

Worker Classifications

With all of the recent news about gig work and the potential for misclassifying workers as contractors or employees, employers across the U.S. are assessing the relationships with their independent contractors to determine whether their company would survive examination under a Department of Labor audit of their workers. Misclassifying contractors as employees or vice versa can cause a lot of trouble.

How Paycor Helps

If you’re planning to hire an independent contractor, it’s important to take all the pros and cons into consideration. If you’re not sure about how to pay them or the potential compliance challenges surrounding hiring them, we can help. We have decades of experience helping businesses accurately pay and report earnings for employees and freelancers in every industry.


How can my company attract job seekers with disabilities?

An easy step is to ensure that your hiring process isn’t biased against those with disabilities. Job seekers whose applications include references to disabilities—even those that will have no impact on their capacity to fulfill the job for which they are applying—are 26% less likely to be invited for an interview, according to a Rutgers University study.

Furthermore, it’s important to make your hiring process accessible—this could apply to where you advertise vacancies, the ease-of-use of your website and any locations where you hold interviews. Here’s a great question to answer right now: Is your website accessible for the visually impaired? If not, fines and penalties may be right around the corner.

Additionally, all staff involved in recruiting and hiring should be educated on the importance of accessibility and what is required to stay compliant.
