Many businesses employ contingent workers sourced through staffing agencies to support their operational needs. When it comes to applying the ADA, staffing agencies and client employers sometimes misinterpret their individual and joint responsibilities to accommodate workers with disabilities and abide by the law. See JAN’s practical guidance on this topic in, Practical Guidance on Contingent Workers and the ADA at https://askjan.org/articles/Practical-Guidance-on-Contingent-Workers-and-the-ADA.cfm

My response would always be, discrimination and exclusion are inherently spatial processes.” – Kimberly Cordingly, JAN Lead Consultant
