Disabilities Under Alaska Law

Both Alaska and Federal law give individuals with disabilities protection against discrimination in the workplace.

Alaska Employment for the Disabled

Whether you are employed by a government agency or a private company, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against the disabled. When making decisions regarding hiring, job assignment, or promotions, employers in Alaska cannot consider a person's disability.
