Main DigestBNA Books Releases the Second Edition of Disability Discrimination and the Workplace With Updated Analysis of Disability Discrimination Law.
Disability discrimination occurs when an employer or other entity covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act, as amended, or the Rehabilitation Act, as amended, treats a qualified individual with a disability who is an employee or applicant unfavorably because she has a disability.
BNA Books, a division of specialized news and information publisher BNA, today announces the publication of the Second Edition of Disability Discrimination and the Workplace.
This treatise paints a comprehensive picture of the disability discrimination landscape and covers both pre-ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) and post-ADAAA interpretations of the law.
Now that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has issued its final regulations on the ADAAA and continues to issue other updated guidance, disability law is entering 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.
Disability Discrimination and the Workplace, Second Edition addresses the many questions that arise from the final regulations and also discusses:
- The parameters of the Rehabilitation Act, with its development of key definitions, such as those that identify individuals with "handicaps" and the scope of the critical obligation to reasonably accommodate protected individuals
- The proliferation of state disability discrimination protections, some of which preceded the ADA and others of which were structured to coordinate with the ADA, and how these state measures are interpreted
- The intersection of disability discrimination law and other federal statues, including:
- The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
- The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA)
- The Employee Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA)
- The National Labor Relations Act (NLRA)
The treatise also has an eye to the future and focuses on issues that likely will define disability discrimination litigation in years to come.
