Due to Karina having a medical condition that requires her to take steroids, I would deem her disabled under the ADA. Karina taking these steroids and other medications has made her body gain weight making her unable to wear the uniform properly, the stockings and heels. Due to her condition she has back, circulatory system, and endurance problems throughout the day. According to Karina’s doctor, her condition prevents her from wearing the stocking and heels. Karina is technically disabled due to her condition. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 prevents any discrimination against those who are challenged physically due to disability, which would be Karina. Although her symptoms do not prevent her from performing her daily work activities. Her employer cannot hold against her the fact that she has to take this medication to relieve her pain. If Karina’s employer is willing to compromise with her about a solution that will accommodate her and her medical condition then she will able to still hold her position in the front of the store and working the register as she is required to do. The company could allow Karina to wear flat black shoes or black tennis shoes with black slacks to show that she is an employee. Due to the company knowing about Karina’s condition they should have to make accommodations for her. In Karina’s case having her wear a different type of uniform, slacks, flats, tennis shoes, will not hurt the company in any way it will just allow for Karina to perform the duties of her job. The employer technically does not have to provide anything accommodations to Karina if it forces an undue hardship. An undue hardship is when as an disability requires significant difficulty/costs accommodations when it affects an employee’s size, financial resources, and structure of operation.

Critique of Ada and Affirmative Action

...Critique of ADA and Affirmative Action To critique the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) and Affirmative Action, it is imperative that one knows that the Americans with Disabilities Act is a law and Affirmative Action is a policy. The Americans with Disability Act is a law that prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, public transportation, public accommodation, communication, and in governmental activities. Affirmative Action is a policy (regulation depends on the state) that is designed to provide equal opportunity (such as employment, education, and other endeavors) to groups that are discriminated and/or minorities (race/color, religion/beliefs/creed, gender, sexual orientation, and/or national origin). Within the ADA and Affirmative Action, there are pros and cons that exist. Pros of the American Disability Act The Americans with Disability Act has helped protect the civil rights of persons with disabilities. The passing of this law has helped many disabled individuals receive recompense for the discrimination that they faced. In 1997, Wal-Mart was found guilty of discrimination by refusing to hire an individual based on the fact that he was in a wheelchair. As part of its evidence, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission introduced a videotape showing the charging party performing many physically challenging activities during his daily life (EEOC, 2012). As a result, he was granted $225,000 which consisted of back pay,......

...whether to be born and the mother does not have the right to terminate a life. The pro-choice movement supports abortion because they believe that a mother should be given the right to choose whether or not to bring a life into this world. Whatever the reason it may be for an individual to choose between being against and supporting abortion, the decision to ban abortion is in the hands of the government. Following the Roe vs Wade case in 1973, a decision was made and the Supreme Court ruled that women are given the right for an abortion and this includes the right to privacy during her decision making period. Even though the court ruled to legalize abortion under certain circumstances, the debate between whether the US government should ban the abortion completely is still being argued. The Dilemma The decision Supreme Court’s made in 1973 to legalize abortion at about any time in a woman’s pregnancy and for a broad variety of reasons push the issue onto the platform of intense nationwide debate (Grisanti, 1996, p. 169). After the Roe vs Wade case, abortion was legalize all across the nation with exception to save the mother’s life but there are still parties that does not agree with this movement. Supporters of the Pro-Life movement are still fighting for abortion to be banned, as they believe that the fetus should be given the right to choose whether or not to be born in this world. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) from 2008 to......

History of Ada

... is an assessment of the history of the ADA and the ensuing legal precedence that has been set since its adoption. It will discuss in detail the forcefulness of its passage including several political issues that led to its adoption as well as the legal issues that resulted in its conception and development. The paper will also address any outcomes that may have changes or clarified the act, especially those most recent findings that could change the act significantly. The paper will then go on to discuss the foundational way in which the ADA has changed the everyday lives of people. The ADA has changed the face of the belief system with regard to disabilities and the people who have them. It has given people with disabilities a voice, and a set of sounding board organizations that will hear their voice. It among other legislation’s has allowed people with disabilities an opportunity to be seen in the world, rather than to hide within the confines of their home or an institution. It has also changed the way people with disabilities live their lives, and are employed in many good ways. Lastly the paper will express an opinion about the progress that the ADA has created or not created in the overall goal of creating an inclusive environment of respect for individuals with disabilities. The answer to the question “Does abuses no longer occur?” may seem surprising but in truth the answer is no, abuses still occur regularly and the ADA has not done as much as it was hoped it...

Ada and Affirmative Action

...ADA and Affirmative Action 1 Affirmative Action and the A.D.A.: Equality Or Patronizing Hector H. Estrada, II University of Phoenix BSHS 421: Cultural Diversity and Special Populations Group SB07BHS02 Bridgette Hernandez, MSW September 17, 2008 ADA and Affirmative Action 2 There has been discrimination in our society for centuries and as a result many with disabilities or those of color were passed over for employment and not given a fair opportunity due to physical appearance. Fortunately there was the executive order to pass affirmative action which guaranteed the hiring of those of color. However many feel that it is a “quota” system that gives jobs to under qualified minorities over qualified Caucasians. This undertone of resentment and judgment has lead to the repeal of the law in California particularly with the University of California system. But does it really benefit those of color to have affirmative action when many employers felt that they only need to hire the minimum number of minorities and still denying many qualified ones. On the same token the American Disabilities Act was passed to guarantee fair hiring of those with physical and mental disabilities due to many years of gross neglect in hiring practices by employers. This too, like affirmative action, assured the hiring of disabled individuals who were more than qualified for positions but were passed over due to physical or mental limitations. This was a positive change from the......

Ada vs. Adm

...EDA 535 ADA vs. ADM May 28, 2014 Distributing funds into a school can be quite a challenge, especially in a situation where there is only one funding source. Because the schools in the state are not allowed to levy local taxes, a plan will have to be created to ensure that appropriate actions are in place to make sure that there is an equalized distribution of funding. “Average Daily Attendance (ADA) counts are based on the numbers of children actually in attendance in a school or district each day. Average Daily Membership (ADM) measures the numbers of children enrolled to attend a specific district throughout the year” (retrieved from schoolfinance101.wordpress.com). For example, at a particular school in a district there is a population of 1,000 students with 90% attendance and the weighted pupil units per district is $5,000. When using ADM, the weighted pupil units will remain at $5,000. However, if ADA is being used, the actual WPU would be $4,500. This would be a $500 decrease. With the aforementioned definitions of ADA and ADM, I would choose to use Average Daily Membership when distributing funds. Because ADA uses attendance rates, schools with lower attendance rates would suffer. Research shows that “districts with high poverty concentration and high minority concentrations have lower attendance rates for reasons beyond control” (retrieved from schoolfinance101.wordpress.com). Unfortunately, Louisiana has several districts with both high poverty and high...

Case Artyom Kirillov Polina Dzyuba Moscow 2011 Groupe Ariel S.A. : Parity Conditions and Cross-Border Valuation Question 1 There are two ways to compute the projects NPV. The first approach is to calculate it in Mexican Pesos and then change the resulting figure into Euros at the spot rate of MXN15.99/EUR. Note that the discount rate that we have used was the yield on the long-term peso-denominated corporate bonds. Below is the screenshot showing how we have done this. Computing NPV in Mexican Pesos (resulting NPV in Euros is 138,902) Question 2 The second approach is to transfer each cash flow from Mexican Pesos into Euros using the future rates (e.g. in year 5 we use the rate for this particular year rather than the spot rate). Note that the discount rate that we have used was the yield on the French 10-year government bonds. Once again, below you will find a screenshot.

Ada and Affirmative Action

...ADA and Affirmative Action America is suppose to be the land of the free but for years many of our citizens have been discriminated against on the basis of race, gender, or disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1900 and Affirmative Action Acts are two ways our country has taken a stand against discrimination against minorities and those with disabilities. While both of these Acts were created to help ensure that each citizen receives equal and fair treatment they both have their share of controversy surrounding them. This writing will examine both ADA and Affirmative Action for both the positives and negatives that are attached to each Act. After years of disabilities rights groups lobbying congress, the Americans with Disabilities Act was signed into law on Jun 1990 by President George Bush. The ADA was designed to eliminate discrimination against those with mental or physical disabilities in regards to employment, telecommunications, transportation, and public services and accommodations. This law is to help ensure that all American people, regardless of physical or mental disability, has a fair shot at employment and other public services. The ADA requires that any business that employs 15 or more employees must make efforts to provide reasonable accommodations such as safe and accessible work environments, readers for those employees who can not see, allowing for adjustments in the employees schedule to accommodate appointments related to their......

Psychology Ada

...less, was more than Ada thought she could bear. However, with heartache, Ada made a great discovery of her wonderful powers. She had super strength and the ability to sense when people lie and hear their thoughts. Feeling the lowest she ever felt, Ada made a promise to herself that she would do everything in her power to prevent or stop anyone else from being used and betrayed the way she had. And as for the betrayers, she would bring them to justice. After making this personal vow, Ada worried that it would be a hard one to carry out, being that sometimes people don‘t want to accept or believe that their loved ones are deceiving them. To her surprise, things turned out the exact opposite. As if sensing a change in her, people began to ask her for her advice, and pretty soon she became the go-to girl when it came down to relationship problems and concerns. After finishing high school and earning a degree in psychology from Mississippi State University, Ada met and fell in love with a young but extremely successful lawyer, and decided to practice psychology and settle in Philadelphia, Mississippi, and continue her work protecting hearts. The people of Philadelphia were so appreciative of the help she provided that they decided to give a banquet in her honor. Dressed to kill in a black satin off the shoulder evening gown, with her hair in a softly upswept bun, Ada made her rounds at the banquet, thanking everyone for coming and checking up on old cases that she had......

History of the Ada

...employment, access to society, and education. When the individuals with disabilities were seen as a group or a minority, they were seen as deserving of basic civil rights protection. No one individual was the first to need civil rights protection from being disabled. As society progressed, those with disabilities were left behind. They had to fight for their rights to be a part of society and this took place in countless towns all over the country, for years, before anything was done about it on a governmental level. The first barriers faced by Americans with disabilities included access to transportation, employment opportunities, and access to numerous public services. “Passed by Congress in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the nation's first comprehensive civil rights law addressing the needs of people with disabilities, prohibiting discrimination in employment, public services, public accommodations, and telecommunications” (eeoc.gov). Title I of the act is the provisions for employment discrimination. Title I did not go into effect for two years so that the commission had time to develop regulations regarding Title I, to conduct public education programs to inform employers of the disability law, and to allow employers time to adjust for the new regulations. Title II prohibits discrimination based on disability in public services and activities provided by state and local government to exclude local transportation. The Department of......

Ada Lovelace

...Ada Lovelace was born in 1815, and died in 1852 from cancer. Ada Lovelace was the daughter of a famous poet Lord Byron and Anabella Millbank, who also enjoyed math. Ada’s parents were divorced right after she was born and was never able to meet her estrange father. However, her father corresponded with her mother on her upbringing. Anabella Millbank, Ada’s mother, did not want her daughter to be a poet like her father and did everything possible, pushed Ada night and day, to learn mathematics. Even though Ada’s fond interests were elsewhere, her mother diminished those interests until Ada grew a fondness of math, by no choice of her own. At an early age Ada met with Charles Babbage in London, and with that Ada first learned of the Difference Engine. This is when Ada Lovelace’s eyes grew with enormous content, interest, and enthusiasm of the invention, which was later known as the Analytical Engine. In her twenties, Ada married her husband (several years her age) Earl William King and soon after, she bore three children. After having her children she became engrossed and focused on the formulation of the Analytical Engine, which took several years of extensive work, which she loved. Ada composed a “plan for how the engine might calculate Bernoulli numbers. This plan is now regarded as the first “computer program” (Larry Riddle, p. 1). Ada became ill and was diagnosed with cancer of the uterus and died at an early age, like her father, right after her accomplishments. Ada’s......

Ada and Affirmative Action

...ADA and Affirmative Action The United States of America is a culturally diverse place. There are people from all over the world living in here. There are people from different cultures, people with different religious and moral standards and beliefs, and people from different races and of different ethnicities. There are also people living amongst us that face special circumstances such as being physically or mentally disabled, challenged by a chronic illness or even sexual orientation. Throughout history there have been cases where people have been discriminated against, ostracized and excluded based solely on their race, culture, religion, or disabilities. The American Disabilities Act and Affirmative Action are examples of two separate laws that were put into place to protect these people, and in turn offering these people equal opportunities. The American Disabilities Act or ADA was put into place initially in 1990 by President George W. Bush. The ADA is a civil rights law that protects people with disabilities. The ADA describes a person with a disability as follows: “An individual with a disability is a person who -- has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, or has a record of such an impairment” (U.S. Department of Justice, American Disabilities Act, 2012). Specific illnesses covered are epilepsy, muscular dystrophy, heart disease, mental retardation, cancer, and diabetes. Specific learning, speech and......
