Website: The ADA Amendments Act of 2008
The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) reviewed the ADA Amendment ACT (ADAAA) of 2008. In the ADAAA, Congress fixed the definition of disability to cover more people and, as a result, better prevent the discrimination of people with disabilities. This amendment also states that assistive devices are not factors in determining whether a disability qualifies under law and clarifies coverage of conditions that do occur occasionally or episodically.
