Subminimum Or Subpar? A Note In Favor Of Repealing The Fair Labor Standards Act's Subminimum Wage Program, Melia Preedy Sep 2014

Subminimum Or Subpar? A Note In Favor Of Repealing The Fair Labor Standards Act's Subminimum Wage Program, Melia Preedy

Seattle University Law Review

This Note argues for the repeal of Section 14(c) of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), which continues to perpetuate a system allowing employers to pay less than minimum, or “subminimum,” wage to certain employees with disabilities. The Section 14(c) program is a relic of policy leftover from the 1930s and does not help the disabled community, but rather rests on the presumption that persons with disabilities never progress. In light of recent House Resolution 3086, Congress went against the current trend of encouraging maximum independence and equal opportunities for persons with disabilities and instead upheld the subminimum ...

Aging In The United States: Rethinking Justice, Equality, And Identity Across The Lifespan, Nancy J. Knauer Jan 2012

Aging In The United States: Rethinking Justice, Equality, And Identity Across The Lifespan, Nancy J. Knauer

Nancy J. Knauer

Our current aging policies and procedures raise profound questions of individual liberty, autonomy, and equality. Guardianship regimes require the state to balance the interests of vulnerable adults with their right to self-determination. The proliferation of age-specific laws designed to protect elders may actually compromise the civil rights of older individuals by denying their autonomy based solely on their age. The regulation of intimacy in long-term care settings infringes on a core liberty interest essential to human dignity. This essay introduces a new body of work that specifically addresses the civil rights aspects of aging. In many ways, aging represents the ...

Too Old To Treat: Is Health Care Of Right To Older Persons In Uganda?, Med Ssengooba Jan 2010

Too Old To Treat: Is Health Care Of Right To Older Persons In Uganda?, Med Ssengooba

Med Ssengooba

This paper analyses health in the context of older persons/ elderly (words used interchangeably) in Uganda. It offers an insight into health care in Uganda generally and the challenges that older persons experience in accessing health care services. The paper discusses the legal basis upon which older persons can enforce the right to health care in courts of law, and thus it offers a critique of Uganda’s domestic legislation, as well as international instruments to which Uganda is a State Party. The paper finally draws best practices from other jurisdictions as it proposes recommendations on how best Uganda’s ...
