The Americans With Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), which became effective on Jan. 1, 2009, made a number of significant changes to the definition of “disability” under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It also directed the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) to amend its ADA regulations to reflect the changes made by the ADAAA. The EEOC issued a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking on Sept. 23, 2009. The final regulations were published in the Federal Register on March 25, 2011.
