The Litigation Landscape After the ADAAA

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Description

The ADA Amendments Act was passed in September 2008, but it takes some time for these cases to work themselves into the courts and influence the way that the courts interpret the ADA. This session will review cases interpreting the definition of disability under the ADA Amendments Act, and also discuss emerging ADA legal issues in the wake of fewer cases being dismissed for failing to meet the definition of disability. What are the courts now saying about requirements for being qualified or for proving undue hardship or direct threat? Attend this webinar to find out.
