Act that prevents employers from rejecting disabled job applicants on the grounds that hiring such an applicant would result in higher employee health care cost. Additionally, if the job applicant has a disabled spouse, child, or other dependent, regardless of whether or not the job applicant is also disabled, the employer cannot reject the job applicant on those grounds. Thus, the employer cannot exclude disabled employees and their dependents from its health plan on the ground that providing such coverage would increase the cost of health care. Title I of the act became effective for all employers with 25 or more employees on July 26,1992.
