Hiring the Most Qualified Candidate

Q: If I have multiple applicants for my open position and one of those applicants has a disability, am I required under the ADA to offer the position to that individual first?

A: An employer is free to hire a person based on them being the most qualified for the position. The ADA assures that employers do not base employment decisions on disability but instead looks at the each candidate equally based on the needs of the job.
