Most companies are familiar with the “thou shalt not discriminate in any employment practices or decisions” part of the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Such companies thus should be aware that this law has been recently updated by the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) in that the very definition of “who is disabled?” has been changed. (All employers with 20 or more employees are covered by the ADA as amended by the ADAAA. If you need information on the employment provisions (Title I) of the ADA, please contact your Miller & Martin attorney for a referral to our Labor and Employment Law Practice Group).
