The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) has filed suits alleging violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) against several employers. The suits all focus on when and how employers must provide reasonable accommodation.

One important aim of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act(ADAAA) was to take away the courts' previous focus on the definition of disability and place that focus on whether employers are meeting their legal obligations to refrain from disability discrimination and to provide reasonable accommodations.

Employers deal with multiple obligations under federal, and state laws when employees take time off due to disabilities, illnesses, and injuries. With a rise in EEOC claims and litigation, it is crucial that employers determine reasonable and unreasonable accommodations appropriately to avoid massive lawsuits and ADA violations. Many illnesses and injuries, which are covered under other laws, such as the FMLA, may also constitute a “disability” and bring with it to an obligation under the ADA.

Additionally, It is vital that employers identify and terminate ADA abusers; however, employers must proceed with caution when dealing with ADA abuse; as the cost of violating the law can be massive.
