Since 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act has made it "unlawful to discriminate against a qualified individual with a disability" in hiring and other employment-related activities. The Act further states that it is illegal to discriminate against a qualified job applicant "because of the individual's family, business, social or other relationship or association with an individual with a disability."
