New Workplace Rules

New federal regulations go into effect Tuesday that broaden the rights of employees with disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act, or ADAAA, makes it easier for employees claiming disability discrimination to pursue legal action. The new EEOC rules mean employers should no longer focus on whether a disability exists - it likely does, under the law. The focus will shift to whether the disability needs to be reasonably accommodated by the employer. Read details of the new rules here.
