Feel the October days fly through the surrounding air! The gorgeous trees, the beautiful and interesting as always weather, and the bounty upon us is incredible.  Had any pumpkin bread yet? Yummy!

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month 2018  <here you’ll find resources about National Disability Employment Awareness Month and here. a historical timeline of the ADA.  These sites are knowledge filled and helpful to a student studying for the CRC exam!

Celebrate the ADA | Americans with Disabilities ActHappy 28th ADA! (it official was celebrated in July, but I always like to extend partytime!)

“Signed into law in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is civil rights legislation that works to increase the inclusion of people with disabilities in all aspects of community life, including employment. At the U.S. Department of Labor, we are committed to delivering on the promise of the ADA, not only for today‚Äôs workers with disabilities, but also future generations.”

The ADA plays an integral role in the live’s of many people. It gives people with disabilities the right to file lawsuits in Federal court and obtain Federal court orders to stop ADA violations. Any vocationally relevant factor entwined with the person’s civil rights, will describe or amend a violation.

Ready to go, willing to do and happy to help!

Hiring me to perform the research specific to the worker and the situation, prepare an individualized needs assessment and vocational report, and then present in front of a judge or jury makes sense.  

If your case involves the ADA, I’m fully interested in applying my knowledge of the law as it relates to employment and help you help your client!  Here’s a great newspaper story of Pumpkin Man, a hard worker who dares to live his dream!

FYI: Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prohibits private employers, State and local governments, employment agencies and labor unions from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment. The ADA covers employers with 15 or more employees, including State and local governments. It also applies to employment agencies and to labor organizations. https://www.ada.gov/ada_title_I.htm
