Disability Law Deskbook gives you complete, one-stop coverage of the purpose, provisions, and scope of the ADA and important administrative and judicial interpretations of this sweeping law. The Deskbook is invaluable to employers and their attorneys who are looking to develop policies and practices to minimize ADA liability and seeking the sturdiest defenses if ADA disputes end up in court. The Deskbook reveals how employers can minimize liability if they document good faith efforts to comply with the ADA " engage in the EEOC-sanctioned interactive process to determine reasonable accommodation for the disabled " and include indemnification clauses in contracts involving services to employees and applicants. The newly updated Deskbook examines the Supreme Courts Barnett decision resolving the conflict between seniority rights and the ADA right to reasonable accommodation. It also assesses the repercussions of the latest key court rulings in such areas as the types of companies covered by the ADA, undue hardship, retaliation, and direct threat defenses.
