The Caregiver's Journey

To Employers

You may need to advocate on behalf of your service member/veteran with TBI to assure access to employment, transportation, or commercial places.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that employers, public transportation, and commercial businesses not discriminate against people with disabilities. It requires reasonable changes to be made so that the person can work, ride on public transportation, and/or use commercial places.

If you think your service member/veteran with TBI is being discriminated against, speak up. Get to know your family member’s rights under the ADA and how to advocate on his or her behalf by going to www.ada.gov.
