The article is intended to be a follow up to Professor Cheryl Hein’s article entitled “The Americans with Disabilities Act: Accent on Employment Decisions” that appeared in the Summer 1992 edition of the Central Business Review. The article begins with an overview of the ADA and offers a brief ten-year review of the ADA, as well as a discussion of two recent Supreme Court decisions and reactions to those decisions. The article concludes with some practical advise to employers about how to comply with provisions of the ADA.
