Reviews for the New Edition “It is imperative that all in-house counsel who advise HR, and all outside counsel who assist in-house counsel, master the ADA's complexities, especially under the amendments. BNA has always been my most trusted source for quick research, and I know first-hand that the authors have practical, real world expertise which will greatly benefit the harried in-house counselor when facing ADA issues in an environment of broader postamendment protections.”

“Disability discrimination issues have been among the most challenging and important concerns raised by HR clients to both in-house and outside counsel, as well as by individuals seeking guidance and representation in this area. With such issues figuring in more than 25% of current charges lodged with the EEOC, having a comprehensive resource on more than 20 years of caselaw under the federal statutes, as well as the corresponding state laws, is critical for anyone providing advice or representing a party in litigation. This treatise serves as a very useful, in-depth tool in assessing obligations and potential exposure on a very large number of topics in this area, and will be a frequently-used resource.”

Now that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued its final regulations on the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and is continuing to issue other guidance, disability law has entered a new dimension of enforcement. The expanded coverage provisions are having a profound effect, not only on how disability cases are litigated and how courts decide them, but also on how employers and employees interact long before the filing of a lawsuit. With a much wider range of conditions now covered, the focus in the workplace is on avoiding discrimination on the basis of disabilities, accommodating employees with disabilities, and guarding privacy. How can, and should, companies balance employee privacy with ensuring they are accommodating a condition that inhibits, e.g., ‘reproductive functioning,’ or identifying a disability that limits a ‘major life activity’? Such questions are clearly addressed and analyzed in the Second Edition of Disability Discrimination and the Workplace.
Disability Discrimination and the Workplace, Second Edition also discusses:
The treatise also has an eye to the future, with a focus on issues that likely will define disability discrimination litigation in years to come.
In this environment of increased disability discrimination litigation, it is important that practitioners be as well versed as possible in federal disability discrimination law and understand its many different facets. Disability Discrimination and the Workplace, Second Edition paints a comprehensive picture of the disability discrimination landscape and covers both pre-ADAAA and post-ADAAA interpretations. Included in the volume are a helpful table of cases and an appendix with key documents and website addresses. No library is complete without this robust treatise on disability discrimination and the workplace.
