Abstract

The United States has a sound legal system against employment discrimination against persons with disabilities, including the constitution, special laws, and other levels. Through the promulgation of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, the United States has established a basic legal system against employment discrimination of persons with disabilities, effectively safeguarding the basic right of persons with disabilities to employment. The basic legal system against employment discrimination against persons with disabilities in the United States has important reference significance for the improvement of employment discrimination against persons with disabilities in mainland China. By collecting relevant literature and providing relevant research materials, this paper makes a detailed description of the past, current situation, and reform direction of the legal system against employment discrimination against persons with disabilities in the United States, providing a template for reference for the study of the issue in mainland China. The paper finds that although there are many legal provisions prohibiting employment discrimination against persons with disabilities in mainland China, they cannot solve many problems encountered in practice, which leads to the failure to improve the employment situation of persons with disabilities. Therefore, it is necessary for mainland China to learn from the relevant laws of the United States to improve its anti-disability employment discrimination legislation.
