New Burdens for Employers and Small Businesses
New burdens for employers and small businesses are on the way. The House of Representatives passed the ADA Amendments Act by a vote of 402-to-17 last week. Among other things, it would allow people with trivial impairments to claim the special accommodations previously reserved for the truly disabled. We earlier commented on a similar bill, the ADA Restoration Act, and discussed lawsuits by disabled plaintiffs against internet businesses and schools.
