Description

When the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was passed in 1990, it was intended to ensure “equality of opportunity” and “economic self-sufficiency” for individuals with disabilities.  For employers, the ADA has proved challenging.  It is a complex law, with rules that can be confusing and often misunderstood.

In addition, the law has undergone significant changes since its passage, including the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act, which took effect in 2009.  Did you know, for example, that leave may be a “reasonable accommodation” under the ADA – which is why the ADA has been called “FMLA for small employers”?  Employers also often overlook that they, too, have rights under the ADA, and that the employee also has obligations under the law.
