The ADA is important to food service employers and employees. Food service employers must avoid discriminating against people with disabilities while obeying strict public health rules. Food service workers with disabilities have rights under the ADA when applying for jobs or when working for a restaurant, cafeteria, or other food service employer.
This Guide has three parts: (1) basic information about the ADA; (2) an explanation of the relationship between the ADA and the FDA Food Code (1); and (3) a discussion of the ADA's rules that prohibit employment discrimination against qualified people with disabilities.
