The Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act (ADAAA) will take effect on January, 1, 2009. Are you preparing for more employees to request reasonable accommodations?

Now is the time to learn how disability will be defined under the new Amendments Act and how to avoid discriminating against those who have a genetic marker for a disease. The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act (GINA) and the ADAAA will require employers to change their approach to applicants and employees with disabilities. There’s no doubt about it. Many legal advisors anticipate that employment litigation will increase.

CCH's Law & Explanation book, Understanding the New Disability and Genetic Discrimination Laws of 2008, will help you unravel the laws and their enforcement provisions, including their relationship with other federal and state laws. Separate explanations of each law’s provisions include expert CCH analysis including the unique relationship between the ADA and GINA.

Bonus – State Law Chart!

This book includes a state law chart of all states that have disability discrimination and genetic discrimination laws and their key components.
