Why the New ADAAA Regulations Matter

 

There has been a litigation explosion.

From charges filed and damages paid by employers, the EEOC received 26,968 disability charges in 2015 and the ADA accounted for 30.2% of all EEOC charges, which is seven straight years of increases from 20.4% in 2008. In a series of cases, the Supreme Court of the United States narrowly interpreted “substantially limits” and “major life activities” which resulted in excluding many individuals from ADA coverage. Congress decided that the ADA intended to be broadly construed in favor of coverage and the ADAAA was enacted in 2008 and court’s decisions were overturned. This background information will help to explain why the new ADAAA regulations matter.
