ADAA/Privacy/GINA – What you need to know and what you should not know, Cox Smith Employment and Employer Rights Workshop

July 21, 2011

The federal government has been extremely busy the last two years in many areas of governance, including the drafting and implementing of interpretive regulations. Regulations issued include those drafted by the EEOC pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments ("ADAA") and the Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act ("GINA"). These regulations will have a far reaching effect and much greater impact on all employers with fifteen (15) or more employees, than the laws themselves. Cox Smith will host a workshop on July 21, 2011 to review these new regulations and their related effect on employee privacy. Some topics that will be addressed include:

  • Are there any conditions that are not considered disabilities?
  • What does engaging in the interactive process really mean?
  • How employers may get genetic information?
  • What? We need to complete FMLA forms too?
