Ian Johnson's Contribution to the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008 Implementing Regulations promulgated by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
EEOC Docket Comment regarding psychotherapy as a mitigating measure under the Americans with Disabilities Amendments Act of 2008, Doc. No. EEOC-2009-0012-0003, October 5, 2009, proposes that "psychotherapy" be added to the list of "mitigating measures" contained in the proposed 29 CFR 1630.2(j)(5). The EEOC ultimately adopted this proposal, including "psychotherapy" in 29 CFR 1630.2(j)(5)(v).
EEOC Docket Comment regarding anomalous treatment of 12-step programs under the ADA regulations, Doc. No. EEOC-2009-0012-0012, October 22, 2009, pointing out the anomalous treatment of 12-step programs under the proposed regulations.
EEOC Docket Comment in support of proposed language concerning actions based on the symptoms of an impairment, Doc. No. EEOC-2009-0012-0030 , November 17, 2009, written in support of the EEOC's proposed language that stated "actions based on an impairment include actions based on the symptoms of an impairment," which EEOC ultimately rejected.
EEOC Docket Comment regarding "human mediated treatments" under the ADA regulations, Doc. No. EEOC-2009-0012-0451, November 24, 2009, summarizing previous submissions, with an emphasis on "the need to explicitly include psychotherapy, 12-step support groups and other human-mediated treatment and support modalities in the list of mitigating measures." In its explanation of the final regulation, the EEOC explicitly recognized my suggestion to include a general category of “human mediated treatments,” like those listed in §1630.2(j)(5)(v), in the listing of “mitigating measures” included in the regulation, but concluded this was unnecessary because such treatments were already implicitly included in the list given. 76(58) Fed. Reg. 16982 (Mar. 25, 2011).
