Overview

Supplemented twice a year for complete currency, these volumes provide everything you need to prepare your ADA case - from either side of the courtroom. Recognized ADA authority Henry H. Perritt, Jr., clearly defines statutory and regulatory requirements, and he gives you a complete analysis of rapidly expanding case law - organized by high profile topics. With the Americans with Disibilities Act Handbook you'll explore the statutory definition of disability, the concept of being "otherwise qualified" for a job, and exactly how employers, business owners, and providers of governmental services must make "reasonable accommodation." And you'll get the Act and all regulations to date, along with every form you'll need in print and on disk in WordPerfect 5.1 format that is easily convertible to other popular word-processing programs.
