Physical/Mental Ability Discrimination

Chapter 14 introduces physical and mental ability as aspects of diversity.  Nearly one in five Americans (about 54 million) have a disability, of which many are invisible.  Most of these workers require no special accommodations.  Although people with disabilities want to work, they are more likely to be unemployed and have lower earnings than people without disabilities. 

What are reasonable accommodations for people with physical/mental disabilities?  How does a company determine what is “reasonable” and what is not?
In the $561,000 DuPont disability discrimination judgement (pages 449-456), even if Ms. Barrios had been unable to walk, what steps could have been taken to assist her if the need to evacuate the building arose?  Speculate on reasons this case was not resolved before Ms. Barrios was terminated or after she filed her discrimination charge with the EEOC but before the jury trial.
Discuss similarities in performance expectations of people with disabilities and other workers.
