Practical Law Company & Ogletree Deakins to Present Free Webinar Addressing Final ADAAA Regulations' Impact on Employers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Aug 22, 2011) - Following the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's final rule interpreting the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA), Practical Law Company (PLC), a provider of online practical know-how for law firms and law departments, and Ogletree Deakins, a full-service labor and employment law firm providing representation for employers, will present a free webinar, "Deconstructing the Final ADAAA Regulations: How to Comply with the New Guidance." The webinar, which takes place on September 14, 2011, at 1:00PM ET/10:00AM PT, will address what adjustments employers need to make in order to comply with the ADA Amendments Act and the EEOC's revised regulations. An interactive question and answer session will follow.

During the one-hour presentation, Ogletree Deakins shareholders, Thomas D. Arn and Thomas A. Bright, will discuss the interpretative changes to the definition of "disability," under the ADAAA, what the changes mean for companies and how to ensure compliance. Kate Bally, PLC's Labor & Employment Head of Service, will moderate.

"In issuing its final ADAAA regulations, the EEOC carried out Congress' mandate that the ADA should be interpreted in favor of broad coverage," explained Ms. Bally. "This webinar and PLC's resources equip law firm and in-house attorneys with the practical know-how they need to counsel their clients to ensure compliance and avoid pitfalls."
