El Derecho Laboral Y Las Personas Con Discapacidad En El Perú: Estándares Internacionales Y Análisis De Las Implicancias De La Ley General De La Persona Con Discapacidad Y Su Reglamento, Elard Ricardo Bolaños Salazar

Elard Ricardo Bolaños Salazar

El presente trabajo aborda un tema que no ha sido muy debatido en el Perú a pesar de su gran importancia. El desempeño de las personas con discapacidad en el ámbito laboral cobra un realce superlativo cuando nos damos cuenta que este grupo en situación de vulnerabilidad también necesita satisfacer necesidades propias de desarrollo y crecimiento, en efecto, es a través de un trabajo que la persona con discapacidad puede volverse realmente independiente y, en consecuencia, ser ella misma hacedor de su propio destino. En tal sentido, este artículo abordará cuales son la implicancias de la nueva ley general de ...

Negligence And Accommodation: On Taking Others As They Really Are, Avihay Dorfman Jan 2014

Negligence And Accommodation: On Taking Others As They Really Are, Avihay Dorfman

Avihay Dorfman

Disagreements over the morality and the efficiency of the standard of reasonable care are at the root of the study of negligence law (and, perhaps, tort law as a whole). They typically proceed as though the most important question that needs to be addressed is that of the content of this standard, namely, the question of what reasonable care is. However, in these pages I shall argue that there exists another important question, which is to say the manner in which reasonable care is evaluated. This question, I show, is neither fixed by nor subservient to the content of the ...


Toward A Less Adversarial Relationship Between Chevron And Gardner, James Ridgway Jan 2014

Toward A Less Adversarial Relationship Between Chevron And Gardner, James Ridgway

James D. Ridgway

In twenty-five years of judicial review of veterans benefits claims, the courts have failed to reconcile the interpretive canons of veteran friendliness and deference to the agency’s policy making role. This article argues that the courts must develop a coherent relationship between these doctrines by recognizing that each are core values of veterans law. First, it explores the history and nature of these two doctrines that are central to veterans law. Then, It considers how the canons are situated in the spectrum of fact- and value-based judicial review. Ultimately, separation-of-powers principles and the legislative history of the Veterans Judicial ...

The Gross Confusion Deep In The Heart Of Univ. Of Texas S.W. Med. Center V. Nassar, Brian S. Clarke Jun 2013

The Gross Confusion Deep In The Heart Of Univ. Of Texas S.W. Med. Center V. Nassar, Brian S. Clarke

Brian S. Clarke

This essay addresses a fundamental issue underlying the Supreme Court’s consideration of Univ. of Texas S.W. Med. Center v. Nassar, namely the parameters of the factual causation standard applicable in disparate treatment cases. This essay also addresses a previously unrecognized area of agreement between the plurality and dissent in Price Waterhouse v. Hopkins that can resolve the factual causation issue underlying Nassar.

The Court’s most recent pronouncement on this issue, in Gross v. FBL Financial Services, has led to confusion as defendants and courts have interpreted Gross to require sole factual causation for the plaintiff to prevail ...


Moving Towards Autonomy And Equality: An Analysis Of The New Mental Health Care Bill 2012, Dharmendra Chatur, Jayna Kothari Dec 2012

Moving Towards Autonomy And Equality: An Analysis Of The New Mental Health Care Bill 2012, Dharmendra Chatur, Jayna Kothari

Dharmendra Chatur

The new Mental Health Care Bill 2012 marks a complete shift from the existing Mental Health Act 1987 from viewing persons with mental disabilities as persons requiring institutionalisation, to persons with autonomy, equal recognition of their rights and full legal capacity. This shift has been in view of India’s ratification of the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities 2006 (“UNCRPD”). In this paper, we analyse the provisions of the Bill specifically in the context of the changes in mental health care law that it proposes, keeping in mind the rights to autonomy and equality of persons ...

Disabled Students' Rights Of Access To Charter Schools Under The Idea, Section 504 And The Ada, Robert A. Garda Jr. Jan 2012

Disabled Students' Rights Of Access To Charter Schools Under The Idea, Section 504 And The Ada, Robert A. Garda Jr.

Robert A. Garda

Charter schools are under increasing attack for denying admission to disabled students. But traditional schools also turn away disabled students, often preventing them from attending schools in their neighborhood or within their district. This Article discusses when a school is permitted under federal disability law to deny admission to a disabled student. After nearly four decades of special education jurisprudence and regulatory guidance, the circumstances under which a student with a disability may be denied admission to a particular school are still remarkably unclear. This Article first discusses the "zero-reject" principle underlying the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and concludes ...


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 ...

Disability And The Persistence Of Poverty: Reconstructing Disability Allowances, Sagit Mor Feb 2011

Disability And The Persistence Of Poverty: Reconstructing Disability Allowances, Sagit Mor

Sagit Mor

Disability policy has always been deeply immersed in questions relating to the relationships between disability and poverty. Analysts have historically attempted to separate disability from poverty: these efforts began as early as the Poor Laws of eighteenth century England and, enhanced by the rise of the modern welfare state, they culminated in the enactment of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the 20 years that followed. In this article, I argue that it is time to reexamine the nexus between disability and poverty and attend to their co-constitutive relationships. I suggest a reconstructive reading of disability allowances as a locus ...


Institutionalization And Exclusion, Erica L. Shnayder Jan 2010

Institutionalization And Exclusion, Erica L. Shnayder

Erica L Shnayder

On August 15, 2007, Croatia became the fourth country in the world to ratify the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. Since then, however, Croatia has failed to meet its obligations under the international treaty. Croatia has made virtually no progress on deinstitutionalization and continues to deny persons with disabilities the right to legal capacity and equal access to education and employment. In Croatia, persons with mental and intellectual disabilities continually face isolation and segregation on the basis of their disability. In order to meet the goals of the CRPD, Croatia must focus on building a more inclusive ...


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 ...

Who Is Eligible Under The Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act?, Robert A. Garda Jr. Jan 2006

Who Is Eligible Under The Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act?, Robert A. Garda Jr.

Robert A. Garda

Determining who is eligible under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA) has plagued decision-makers for over three decades, leading to both over- and under-identification of eligible children and the disproportionate identification of minority students as disabled. The statutory requirements for finding a child IDEA-eligible appear straightforward: a child must have an enumerated disability that adversely affects educational performance and by reason thereof the child must need special education. Application of these provisions has proven problematic, however, and the authorities are divided as to what constitutes “educational performance,” when is it “adversely affected” by the disability, under what circumstances ...


Adequate Access Or Equal Treatment: Looking Beyond The Idea To Section 504 In A Post-Schaffer Public School, Christopher J. Walker Jan 2006

Adequate Access Or Equal Treatment: Looking Beyond The Idea To Section 504 In A Post-Schaffer Public School, Christopher J. Walker

Christopher J. Walker

In light of the Supreme Court's decision this Term in Schaffer v. Weast, this Note analyzes the current state of special education law and argues that parents, attorneys, and advocates should look beyond the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) to Section 504 in the post-Schaffer public school. This Note shows how these two standards operate in the context of state special schools for the blind and deaf. A state-by-state survey of thirty states' special school admission policies and practices reveals the IDEA's limitations and Section 504's potentially complementary role.

Although other works have briefly compared the ...


The New Idea: Shifting Educational Paradigms To Achieve Racial Equality In Special Education, Robert A. Garda Jr. Jan 2005

The New Idea: Shifting Educational Paradigms To Achieve Racial Equality In Special Education, Robert A. Garda Jr.

Robert A. Garda

African American students are being re-segregated in today's public schools by their disproportionate placement in special education classes for the disabled pursuant to the Individuals With Disabilities in Education Act (IDEA). At the same time, the overall number of children found disabled and entitled to special education under the Act has skyrocketed over the past decade, leaving special education classes with swollen roles and inadequate resources. Congress attempts to remedy this divisive dual eligibility crisis when it re-authorized the IDEA in 2004 by promoting an educational paradigm of individualized instruction in general education. The new IDEA seeks to "fix ...


Untangling Eligibility Requirements Under The Individuals With Disabilities In Education Act, Robert A. Garda Jr. Jan 2004

Untangling Eligibility Requirements Under The Individuals With Disabilities In Education Act, Robert A. Garda Jr.

Robert A. Garda

Finding a child eligible for special education under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) is one of the most important, if not the most important, decision that will be made in that child's life. Despite the importance of eligibility determinations the eligibility criteria of IDEA are intricately tangled and often misapplied by courts, hearing officers and inevitably parents and educators. The confusion surrounding eligibility standards leads to the disastrous results of both over-identification and under-identification of IDEA eligible children. This Article attempts to untangle the web of IDEA eligibility standards in order to determine who is entitled to ...
