      The Americans With Disabilities Act, Amendments Act of 2008

      The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 is a U.S. law, an amendment to the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), effective January 1, 2009. It was intended to provide greater protection to the disabled in the United States, and was passed in response to decisions by the Supreme Court clarifying the original ADA which were believed to be averse to the civil liberties of the disabled. It was designed to strike a balance between employer and employee interests.

       
      Reasons for Enactment

       
      The ADA Amendments Act of 2008 was intended to overturn two controversial provisions in the ADA.

       
      The overturned decisions were Sutton v. United Air Lines (130 F.3d 893)[2], which held that potential disabilities were to be evaluated in light of any mitigating medical devices used by the person claiming the disability; and Toyota Motor Mfg., KY, Inc. v. Williams (224 F.3d 840)[3] which held that the original ADA phrase "substantially limited" required plaintiffs claiming a disability prove their disability "prevents or severely restricts the individual from doing activities that are of central importance to most people’s daily lives." This shift from "substantially limited" to "severely restricts" was considered a more onerous standard than previous applied.
