The protections under the ADA for persons with cancer became stronger under the amendments to the ADA in 2009. Now cancer, whether active or in remission, should be a covered disability under the ADA. The EEOC issued regulations on March 25, 2011, stating that cancer is presumptively a covered disability under the ADA. The EEOC provided elsewhere in the regulations that an illness that would be disability when active would also be a covered disability when in remission.
