law assignment 1 1

Answer three questions below. You must do your own work and use Turnitin. Not accept any paper that has 25% or more “similarity. Also not accept papers that fail to properly cite to sources.

5 full Pages. Like all papers you’ll submit, formatting is: 1” margins all around, double-spaced, Times New Roman, 12-point font. No headers, extra spaces between paragraphs – none of the little tricks that take up space.

1.

The ADA requires “reasonable accommodations.” First, in your own words, what does this mean? What must an employer do? Then, imagine you are a hospitality manager in a large hotel. You have a number of disabled employees. Identify at least four (4) different disabilities your employees may have and for each disability identify a reasonable accommodation you may provide. Finally, in your own words, when can you refuse to provide a reasonable accommodation to an applicant or employee who requests one?

2.

A hospitality facility may not be required to provide a reasonable accommodation if it would result in an “undue hardship.” Do some research and find a case where a court ruled that a requested accommodation was reasonable and did not result in an “undue hardship.” Tell me why the court ruled in favor of the plaintiff. Then, find a case where a court ruled that an accommodation was not reasonable because it resulted in an “undue hardship.” Again, tell me why the court ruled in favor of the defendant. In both instances, I want you to share the most important facts that “persuaded” the court.

3.

An important part of the ADA is an employer’s obligation to engage in the “interactive process.” Do some research into that term and, in your own words, tell me what it means. Then, find a case where the central dispute was whether or not a plaintiff or defendant properly engaged in the “interactive process.” Tell me the major arguments made by each side and tell me how the court ruled…and why.
