Topic Overview

You know what it says, but what does it mean?

Plunkett Cooney labor and employment law attorney Courtney L. Nichols brought attendees up to speed on how the key changes to the ADA Amendments Act have impacted accommodating and litigating disability claims.

This webinar focused on federal courts' interpretation of key issues under the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA), including, but not limited to: what exactly is a “disability?” And is an individual “qualified” for a particular position? The presentation focused on real-life examples that helped business executives, HR professionals, and EPLI coverage professionals understand the implications of the ADAAA and identify future trends.
