Happy Star Wars Day! May the (Section 504)th be with you!
At ABLE Tech, our staff can't resist a good pun...or a good learning opportunity!
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, is a federal law that prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities by entities that receive federal funds.
Section 504 actually codified constitutional equal protection for the rights of individuals with disabilities. Section 504 was closely modeled upon civil rights legislation and is intended to offer individuals with disabilities equal opportunity to pursue employment, educational and recreational goals free of discrimination.
