In 2011 the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued its final regulations implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), which was enacted on September 25, 2008 and became effective January 1, 2009. The Act made a number of significant changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act's (ADA) "disability" definition, reinstating a broad scope of protection.
Our expert faculty, including representatives from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) will discuss the latest legal updates on the ADAAA. Challenging reasonable accommodation issues such as leave and reassignment will also be considered. This is a unique opportunity to learn from, and ask question of, our expert panelists on these rapidly changing topics in employment discrimination law.
In this program, the faculty will
- examine the EEOC's most recent regulations and guidance on the ADAAA and the way that recent court decisions have applied the law and regulations;
- discuss when extended or intermediate leave may be required as reasonable accommodations, how the obligation to provide leave as an accommodation relates to an employer’s obligations under the FMLA, and what factors may make providing leave an undue hardship;
- discuss the circumstances under which reassignment should be considered as a reasonable accommodation; and
answer your questions about the ADA.
