ADA Compliance Based on the Final Regulations and A Renewed Focus By the EEOC

Webinar
April 5, 2011
Event/Organization: 
Littler Mendelson Webinar

The EEOC has taken the view that compliance efforts will no longer be stymied by challenges to coverage under the ADA. In 2010, the largest number of disability-related charges were filed with the EEOC since the enactment of the ADA. From FY 2008 to FY 2010, disability-related charges increased by 23% from 19,453 (FY 2008) to 25,165 (FY 2010). The EEOC also is carefully reviewing employer compliance efforts and has increased its litigation docket involving ADA litigation.

This program will highlight the most pressing compliance issues under the ADA for employers and provide practical recommendations for handling those issues. Some of the key topics to be addressed include:

  • What the final regulations mean for employers, and how the regulations change the focus for future disability discrimination litigation
  • The key compliance issues under the ADA that every employer must know and practical considerations for addressing them
  • What is “reasonable” when addressing accommodation issues
  • Significant EEOC development — charge activity, court filings and recent settlements
  • Recent court decisions interpreting the ADA
  • The anticipated future of enforcement efforts and litigation under the ADA
