Wolters Kluwer, Nov 1, 2002 - Law - 1671 pages

The Americans With Disabilities Act Handbook provides comprehensive coverage of the ADA's employment, commercial facilities, and public accommodations provisions as well as coverage of the transportation, communication, and federal, local, and state government requirements.

In one comprehensive two-volume set, you'll get a complete analysis of the Act and all the forms and case law you'll need to prepare your case. Recognized ADA authority Henry H. Perritt, Jr., clearly defines statutory and regulatory requirements for public and private employers, commercial facilities and places of public accommodation.

There's a complete analysis of the rapidly expanding case law - organized by frequently litigated topics, like wheelchair access and AIDS discrimination. In-depth analysis is provided for the numerous federal and state cases and significant regulatory activity by the EEOC cropping up each year.

You'll also get thorough analysis of how the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 relates to ADA. The statutory definition of disability and the concept of being andquot;otherwise qualifiedandquot; for a job are also discussed in-depth. And you'll see exactly what employers, business owners, and providers of governmental services must do to make andquot;reasonable accommodation.andquot;

Plus, a comprehensive section that organizes case law by type of physical and mental impairment and accommodation by type of job requirement, making analysis easier.

U.S. Department of Justice? (Scooby Do!o),
where are you?
while you were sleeping I went fishing
on G-D'S web
look at what I caught and reeled in:
For example, a copier company whose service representative is a dwarf
could be required to provide a stepstool as a
reasonable accommodation, to enable him/her (I added her)
to perform the necessary repairs
p.s.
chew! chew!
p.p.s.
bro(t)her! I do don't you
know THAT
we(e spirits! "in man") can do better
