Petition: Prevent Discrimination Against Workers with Disabilities

Submitted by Art
Article Date: Thu, 2008-03-13 07:19


In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was signed into law with strong bi-partisan support. This act was to be the “emancipation proclamation” for people with disabilities preventing unfair treatment toward people with current, past and perceived disabilities. However, 17 years after the passage of this historic civil rights legislation, the courts have significantly weakened the original provisions of the ADA by narrowing the definition of “disability.”
