Oklahoma Employment for the Disabled
Discrimination against disabled individuals is illegal under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), whether the employer is the government or a private citizen. An employer in Oklahoma may not consider someone's disability when they make the decision to hire that person, their job assignments or whether they may advance in their position.
Employers in Yukon must also provide any special equipment that the disabled person may require for performing duites, so long costs are reasonable. This is in addition to providing fair treatment. Employers are also prohibited under the act from discrimination based on a person's relation to someone with a disability or special needs.
