The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently issues its final revised Regulations to Implement the Equal Employment Provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act, along with accompanying interpretive guidance. These final Regulations interpret the Americans with Disabilities Act of 2008 (ADAAA), which was originally signed into law by President George W. Bush on September 25, 2008, and went into effect January 1, 2009.
The EEOC's Regulations, along with other resources, took effect on May 24, 2011. We encourage you to view an Advisory explaining how these Regulations change the ADA landscape.
