On September 23, 2009, the EEOC published proposed regulations to implement the ADA Amendments Act. The ADA Amendments Act, enacted last year, made a number of significant changes to the definition of "disability" in the ADA and directed the EEOC to amend its existing regulations to reflect the changes made by the ADA Amendments Act. In effect, the statute and proposed regulations are designed to expand the coverage of the ADA.
