Gibney Interviewed on the Americans with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires employers to provide reasonable accommodations to qualified employees. In a 13 ABC interview, Eastman & Smith attorney Thomas J. Gibney tells viewers, a “reasonable accommodation is something that enables an employee to perform . . . [and] folks with impairments under the ADA are held to the exact same qualitative and quantitative standards as non-disabled, non-impaired employees.” Mr. Gibney is a member of Eastman & Smith in its Labor & Employment Practice Group.
Enacted in 1990, ADA was substantively amended in 2008. It is one of several laws addressing discrimination in employment. For questions concerning ADA or other discrimination issues, please contact one of our attorneys.
