The 2008 Amendments to the Americans with Disabilities Act

Connecticut Bar Association Labor & Employment Law Quarterly

Winter/Spring 2009

On September 25, 2008, President Bush signed the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment Act of 2008 (“ADAAA”). The effect of this act was to reverse and/or address several United States Supreme Court decisions and portions of the EEOC’s regulations. The effective date of the ADAAA was January 1, 2009. The EEOC has stated that it will be evaluating the impact of the changes on its enforcement guidances and other publications. Therefore, the effect of the ADAAA may take some time to evolve as employers and employees adjust to the new provisions.
