ADA Webinar: ADAAA Regulations

The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act Regulations: Expert Analysis with a Focus on Workers with Diabetes

The American Diabetes Association, along with the National Employment Lawyers Association, presented this webinar in April 2011 to educate attorneys representing people with diabetes on the regulations issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) implementing the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. The webinar was moderated by Kathy Butler, Vice Chair of the Legal Advocacy Subcommittee of the Association, and presented by EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum and Brian East, an experienced employment lawyer and Association volunteer. The webinar discusses the key provisions of the EEOC’s ADAAA regulations and how they will apply to proving that individuals with diabetes are disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act.
