Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

The ADA prohibits employers from asking pre-employment questions about disabilities and physical conditions unless the questions directly relate to "essential job functions." You can only ask for job-related disability information after you make a conditional offer of employment. Other laws, such as the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Age Discrimination Employment Act, also affect the types of pre-employment questions that employers may ask.

The same questions must be asked of all applicants. Examples of questions that you may ask include:

Can you move 50 pounds from point A to point B with or without accommodations?

Can you sit for two hours at a time?

Would you be able to arrive at work by 8:00 AM every day?

For information about Disabled Applicant and Reasonable Accommodation, Disability Services Information.
