I recently recorded a podcast with Steve Berstler, the producer and anchor of LexisNexis® Legal News audio podcasts, regarding the regulations that were issued by the EEOC implementing the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act. As summarized on the Lexis website, the podcast provides an overview of (1) how the recent EEOC regulations issued in March 2011 interplay with statutory changes to the Americans with Disabilities Act; (2) specific areas addressed by the regulations; (3) the impact of the Amendments Act and litigation arising from the changes in the Act; and (4) practical advice and best practices for companies following the issuance of the new regulations.
You can listen to the podcast here, or download it off iTunes for free. If you have limited time, a short attention span, or perhaps just want me to get right to the point – the best practices that companies need to be thinking about are discussed at the 20:50 mark. Enjoy.
