Wisconsin Fair Employment Act

Wisconsin

Wisconsin's Fair Employment Law gives civil rights protections to qualified persons with disabilities. The law applies to virtually all, private and public employers, regardless of the number of employees. Under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), disability discrimination is also prohibited for employers having 15 or more employees. Both laws are designed to ensure equal opportunity in all aspects of employment.
