The purpose of this book is to provide students with an in-depth understanding of the ADA, including the sections governing employment (Title I), public entities (Title II), and public accommodations (Title III). The book focuses on the major components of the ADA, with extensive reference to the implementing regulations and accompanying guidance statements--essential building blocks for a complete understanding of the Act. It also covers a wide range of additional topics, such as education, housing, insurance, and the protection of newborns with disabilities. Because the ADA intersects several other federal statutes, such as the IDEA, the FHAA, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, cross-references to these and other statutes are frequently provided. A companion book, The Law of Disability Discrimination Handbook: Statutes and Regulatory Guidance, includes reference material relevant to interpreting federal law prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability. The Handbook includes the statutory language of each of the five Titles of the ADA. In addition, with respect to Titles I, II, and III, the Handbook includes the regulations and interpretive guidance promulgated by the EEOC and the United States DOJ. The Handbook also includes reference material relevant to interpreting Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Fair Housing Act Amendments of 1998, as well as excerpts from the Civil Rights Act of 1991. Further, the Handbook contains the text of the IDEA, the Department of Education Regulations implementing the IDEA, and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.

Employment discrimination is present in any society. However, this severe social problem has escalated in the post-Mao era in China. The imbalance between supply and demand in the labour market, combined with a lack of general consciousness regarding labour rights, have contributed to the swift spread of discrimination. This book contains the most recent research on the reality of discrimination in China, and advocates for effective employment equality protection through law and specialised equality institutions. The study of equal treatment in the legal systems of the EU illustrates the important contribution law, together with general policies, can make to the improvement of equality in employment. While both systems face a distinctive range and degree of problems, employment discrimination ought to be taken seriously in China and the countries of the EU.

The concept of human rights at work has advanced significantly in the last decade. The authors of the essays in Human Rights in Labor and Employment Relations focus in various ways on how the promotion and protection of human rights at workplaces here and around the world posit a new set of values and approaches that challenge every orthodoxy in the employment relations field, every practice and rule based in that orthodoxy, and even the underlying premises and intellectual foundations of contemporary labor and employment systems. The authors constitute a diverse and accomplished group of human rights activists, practitioners, and scholars. Implementing the theme of the volume, they address a wide range of important subjects: worker health and safety, child labor, worker freedom of association, migrant and forced labor, the human rights obligations of employers, workplace discrimination, and workers with disabilities. The authors also discuss the implications of their findings for labor and employment research and, where relevant, make pragmatic proposals for change. Contributors: Susanne M.
