For more than seven years, many employment attorneys have handled cases under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act, which prohibits employment discrimination against disabled persons. Increasingly, however, employment lawyers are becoming involved with cases which concern the other two titles of the ADA.

Title II prohibits discrimination against disabled constituents by state and local governments, as, for instance, in transportation systems or state colleges. Title III prohibits discrimination against the disabled by public establishments such as fast-food restaurants or theaters. The primary governmental agency enforcing these two titles is the Department of Justice, not the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
