Shreveport Times (Louisiana) (02/28/12)
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission has released two updated publications addressing matters related to veterans with disabilities and the Americans With Disabilities Act. The publications reflect changes to the law stemming from the ADA Amendments Act of 2008, which make it easier for veterans with a broad range of disabilities to obtain reasonable accommodations that will allow them to work successfully.
The Guide for Employers shows how protections for veterans with service-connected disabilities differ under the ADA and the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act and how companies can prevent discrimination toward the disabled and provide reasonable accommodations. The Guide for Wounded Veterans answers questions that disabled veterans may have about the protections they are afforded when they want to return to their previous jobs or look for civilian jobs.
