Disabled rights roundup


  • The allergy case just had to involve a ridiculous set of facts, didn’t it? Not, say, an employee with a latex allergy and an employer refusing to allow non-latex gloves to be substituted.

  • Chicago has been fighting the ADA curb ramp for years, now, tearing out perfectly good ramps that do not meet the letter of the ADA guidelines, and replacing them with new ones. The standards are so rigidly applied that invisible departures from the standards result in the new ramps being condemned and re-replaced. You have an army of inspectors with digital levels gimlet-eyeing this stuff.

    It runs the cost way above what it needs to be.
