New ADA Regulations To Be Published Soon

March, 2011


After a long wait, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) new regulations for Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) are expected to be published in April, 2011.

Though the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) was enacted in 2008, employers have been awaiting regulations from the EEOC. The final regulations are expected to include a broad definition of a disability, provide a list of "per se" disabilities, a lower standard of what it means to have a "substantial" impairment, an expanded list of major life activities, and many other changes that will affect how you address situations involving individuals with disabilities.

Once the regulations are published, Cascade will be hosting a presentation to make sure you have all the information you to know for how this may affect your workplace. Stay tuned!
