Americans with Disabilities Act 2008
This statute has almost the same remedies and prohibitions with the one of 1990 and the only difference is a few amendments to the 1990 Act. It also concerns individuals with disabilities and the difference in various statutes that have been amended will be discussed below. The purpose of the statute has been added a few parts which are examples of cases concerning individuals with disabilities and court rulings on them (Gold 24).
The public policy discussed in this statute is in line with transport, accommodation, communication and others like insurance among others. In the transport sector, for example, the statute gives directions about how public transportation and all public buildings and facilities should have lifts or ramps and other facilities like toilets that are user-friendly to the individuals with disabilities. This is meant to eliminate discrimination against people with disabilities in these public sectors which are also the main purpose of this statute.
The same public policies are present in the amended ADA Act of 2008 and they most of them have not been amended meaning they still hold water and are still applicable in the court of law in the case of any of the public policies or the purpose of the statute being violated. The only bit added is in terms of public accommodation which requires owners of public buildings and houses to have facilities and to construct their accommodation areas in line with the policy.
