Disability's By: Jacob P. Howlin Court Cases!! Americans with Disabilities act: Title 1 & (ADA) I chose this song because if everybody can be friends and not discriminate against the disabled, the Act will have done its job. Sources Amendment in 2008 Toyota V. Williams Problems with the Act Sutton V. United Airlines Autism, Downs Syndrome,
Aspurgers, ect... Physical Disabilities Disability's that different
people may have. People were not given rights to help them with
these Disabilities because for a while nobody new about
these. Autism was discovered and given a name in 1943
but it was around way before then. It took so long because
of the many different types on the Autism spectrum. There are people with different physical problems,
cancer, broken/no leg, blind, def, ect... Sutton was a pilot who was refused
to be given a job by the United Airlines because she was servilely near sited. Her argument was that her vision is correctable with glasses. The court ruled that since her vision is correctable she is not substantially limited. Former employee sued Toyota for being
discriminated against. Ella was unable to do her job because of bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome which cause pain in your hand and wrist. The supreme court overturned the Court of Appeals decision and said that Ella Williams inability to perform manual job-related tasks is qualified as a disability. When ever someone wanted to sue a company because of disability the prosecutor would have to jump around from agency to agency and would take a very long time to get to court.
In 2008 the Americans with Disabilities act was
Amended. It was mostly to the benefit of war veterans.
Prosecutors could go straight to court now without
going to various government agency's. The Americans with Disabilities act also helps choose what is a "reasonable accommodation" to your disability. Most are reasonable except sometimes people ask for an assistant and say "i cant do this because of my disability, but my assistant can, if i had one" and the court does not allow that because it is having someone else do your job. Interview with Attorney of Law Peter A. Greenburg There are different ways that the Law can help people with these disabilities, like when you see a handicapped parking space, or brail on the bathroom door, laws were made to help those get there. (1999) Americans with Disabilities act of 1990 Timeline Long Title: An Act to establish a clear and comprehensive prohibition of discrimination on the basis of disability Definition of disability:
Most court cases involving interpretation of the Americans with disabilities act is on deciding weather the person really qualifies as having a disability. if someone has a work car but is too fat to drive it, it is a disability if they have a obesity disorder, not if they are lazy.
