Changes in the Americans with Disabilities Act

Changes in the Americans with Disabilities Act

Recent changes were an effort to fix that; for example, the ADA now covers episodic illnesses that only flair up and cause impairment occasionally. Join us on Monday to learn what other changes were made and the impact it’s expected to have in the workplace.
