Arizona House Concurrent Resolution 2029

Arizona

Whereas, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination in employment against qualified individuals on the basis of disability, which the ADA defines as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity, such as hearing, seeing, speaking, walking, breathing, performing manual tasks, caring for oneself, learning or working; and Whereas, an employer is required to provide a reasonable accommodation to an employee with a disability unless the accommodation would be an undue hardship that would require significant difficultly or expense; and Whereas, many unemployed individuals with disabilities are ready, able and willing to work. Therefore Be it resolved by the House of Representatives of the State of Arizona, the Senate concurring: That the Members of the Legislature support the employment of persons with disabilities and encourage Arizona businesses to hire persons with disabilities.
