The EEOC is hitting the road this fall on a cross-country tour aimed at demystifying the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA). Two of the EEOC's commissioners, Chai Feldblum and Victoria Lipnic, will hold a series of seminars dealing with issues such as essential job functions and job descriptions; the basics of reasonable accommodation; and leave, modified schedules and telecommuting as reasonable accommodations.

The dates and locations of the seminars are:

  • Sept. 11 in Seattle (Doubletree Seattle Airport)
  • Sept. 13 in Los Angeles (Four Points Sheraton Los Angeles Airport)
  • Sept. 18 in Boston (Colonnade Hotel)
  • Sept. 20 in Miami (Hilton Miami Downtown)
The fact that the EEOC is kicking off a cross-country tour aimed at explaining the nuances of the ADAAA provides an important reminder for employers: The ADAAA and its accompanying regulations present a virtual mine-field for those unaware of its complexities. Mastering the basics is an important first step to preventing costly litigation. Knowing when to seek advice from counsel, however, is equally important.

I nformation on how to sign up for this event can be found here.
