    • A key tenet of administrative law is that where Congress enacts statutory provisions for federal agencies to administer, courts should give agencies’ interpretations of those statutes some level of deference. The level of deference given to agencies depends on several factors: whether Congress explicitly or implicitly gave the agency the power to interpret the statute, the technicality of the subjects at issue, and the process by which the agency attempts to interpret the law. Under Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Congress delegated to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) the power to implement regulations that interpret Title I’s goals of ending employer discrimination against individuals with disabilities. When Congress passed the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), it seemingly gave the EEOC even more power to interpret Title I. This Article will examine the level of judicial deference the courts give to the EEOC in its interpretations of Title I of the ADA and whether the passage of the ADAAA impacted any such deference given, Author, Not a "Second Class" Agency: Applying Chevron Step Zero to EEOC Interpretations of the ADA and ADAAA, George Mason University Civil Rights Law Journal, 2014
