The ADA Amendments Act (the ADAAA) has changed the landscape of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Whether you are an employee or an employer, you must understand your rights and obligations under the ADAAA because almost everyone will experience disabilities at some point during his/her life.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), is a civil rights law for persons with disabilities. Civil rights, by their very nature, focus on the needs and rights of individuals; they are built on the belief that all individuals, regardless of their circumstances, are entitled to equal treatment in American society. The ADA was amended in 2008, which made significant changes to the ADA's definition of "disability" that broadens the scope of coverage under both the ADA and Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act.
This course is designed to help increase your knowledge and understanding of the basic principles and core concepts in the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), and the 2010 ADA Standards for Accessible Design.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
