The definition of a "disability" under the Americans with Disabilities Act has been expanded in recent years. With more conditions now considered to be disabilities, it's critical you understand your rights and obligations under the ADA and ADA Amendments Act. This program will explain what is -- and isn't -- considered a disability and what the law considers to be a reasonable accomodation. You'll also gain a better understanding of how the ADA intersects with the Family and Medical Leave Act and workers' comp rules.
