Accommodation Hell, or, To Hell with Accommodation: The ADA and the Administration.
Robinson, William L.
This material is designed to help faculty understand the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA). A brief overview notes three key considerations: the definition of disability, reasonable accommodation, and undue hardship, and then discusses faculty liability and responsibility for discriminatory acts. The balance of the report is an appended guide designed to lead the reader through the huge database of information and assistance available on the Internet. Each section contains material obtained via the Internet, and the materials were current as of November 19, 1996. There is a printout of the U.S. Department of Justice ADA Home Page, showing additional sites with information on the ADA. Next, the "Americans with Disabilities Act Document Center" Web site directs the reader to hundreds of additional sites including sources of ADA documents, the Job Accommodation Network, the Social Security Administration, and other disability sites. Also listed are Internet legal sites, sites for employment issues, and sites for architecture and construction. There is a list of Internet newsgroups, search resources, and library resources. Other materials include: a brief overview of the Americans with Disabilities Act; a list of the activities of the National Institute on Disability and Rehabilitation Research (NIDRR); and information on the Great Lakes Disability and Business Technical Assistance Center and the ADA-Ohio Steering Committee.
