1I Implementing the ADAAA into Titles II & III

1I Implementing the ADAAA into Titles II & III

In 2008, the ADA Amendments Act (ADAAA) set forth a more comprehensive definition of “disability” to ensure a broader interpretation and application without narrow restrictions. In October 2006, a final rule by the Department of Justice was made to incorporate the ADAA into Title II and III of the ADA regulations. The new revisions include specifically listing additional disabilities, adding further examples of major life activities, updates to the “regarded as” prong, and revised provisions to more closely conform with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) regulations.
