Disability discrimination law has entered a new dimension of enforcement. 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. Employers must focus on the sometimes competing goals of avoiding discrimination, accommodating employees with disabilities, and guarding privacy. These challenges are clearly addressed and analyzed in the Second Edition of Disability Discrimination and the Workplace. 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.
Highlights of the Second Edition include analysis of:
Disability Discrimination and the Workplace, Second Edition paints a comprehensive picture of the disability discrimination landscape, covering both pre-ADAAA and post-ADAAA interpretations, and includes a helpful table of cases and an appendix with key documents and website addresses. No employment lawyer's library is complete without this robust treatise.
The 2017 Supplement updates the discussion of case law and addresses new developments including:
The expansion of ADA litigation as a focal point under the EEOC’s Strategic Enforcement Plan;
Case treatment of ADA coverage issues in the aftermath of the ADAAA;
Increased focus in case law on what it means to be a “qualified individual” with a disability;
Attention to reasonable accommodation disputes, including leaves and absenteeism, reassignments, and even service animals;
Benefits issues, such as wellness programs; and
Proliferation of ADA Title III claims, including website accessibility claims and ADA Title III class claims.
