But on Tuesday, it announced a neutral position on the program.

Workers With Disabilities: Since it was enacted by Congress in 1991, the Americans with Disabilities Act has applied to companies with 25 or more employees. But on July 1, it will extend its protection of disabled workers to even smaller businesses--those with at least 15 employees. The Orange County Chamber of Commerce & Industry on Tuesday sponsored a workshop to educate companies, large and small, about the federal law.
