Office of the Assistant Secretary for Policy
- Disability Nondiscrimination Law Advisor

    

Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008

The Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADA Amendments Act) was signed into law on September 25, 2008 and became effective January 1, 2009. Because this law makes several significant changes, including changes to the definition of the term "disability," the Department of Labor will be evaluating the impact of these changes on the Disability Nondiscrimination Law Advisor. See the list of specific changes made to the Americans with Disabilities Act by the ADA Amendments Act.
