EEOC Updates Guidance Documents on Disablity Discrimination

On May 15, 2013, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) issued updates to four 
informal  “Question and Answer” guidance documents relating to protections against disability 
discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Each of the guidance documents, 
which are available on the EEOC’s website, focuses on a different condition (cancer, diabetes, 
epilepsy and intellectual disabilities) and, according  to the EEOC, reflect changes made 
by the ADA Amendments Act .
A copy of the revised guidance documents can be found here. An EEOC May 15, 2013 Press Release 
describing these changes can be found here.
