The ADA Amendments Act

In response to several Supreme Court decisions that limited the coverage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Congress recently amended the Act to restore a broad definition of a person with a disability.  Many more employees and job applicants will now be covered.  Learn the fundamentals of Title 1 of the ADA Amendments Act, which deals with the issues of employment.  Topics include:
  • Who is a person with a disability under the Act?
  • What is reasonable accommodation?
  • What is an essential function?
  • Handling requests for reasonable accommodations

Contact Randy Wright or Diane Thomas-Holladay at 569-8519 for classes on a variety of areas in employment law.
