EEOC Issues Final Regulations Under ADA Amendments Act


This morning, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued final regulations implementing the ADA Amendments Act.  

As you will recall, the ADA Amendments Act went into effect on Jan. 1, 2009.  The Act provides that whether an individual’s impairment is a disability should be construed “broadly.”  The Act also significantly expands the definition of what it means to be
“regarded as” disabled. 
The long-awaited final regulations set forth principles to guide the determination of whether an individual meets these definitions. 

 

The final regulations will be published in the Federal Register on Friday.  An advance copy of the final regulations, accompanying Question and Answer documents and a fact sheet are available on the EEOC website at http://www.eeoc.gov/laws/statutes/adaaa_info.cfm

An extensive analysis will be provided by Duane Morris and posted on this blog at the beginning of next week.
