Eleven percent of Bay Area residents live with a disability. That includes developmental disabilities like autism, cerebral palsy, and Down syndrome. Society makes accommodations for people with these conditions when they're young and in school, like mandated special needs education. But once they’ve aged out, life can become even more challenging. And in the U.S., history has not been kind.

The Americans With Disabilities Act and the Obligations of Small Businesses. Guests: Steven Schraibman, ADA Compliance Expert/Architect; Martin Orlick, ADA Compliance  Attorney; Regina Dick-Endrizzi, Executive Director, Office of Small Business, County of San Francisco; and Carole Conn, Director of Public Service Programs, San Francisco Bar Assn.

  

On today's Your Call, we'll rebroadcast a conversation we had with longtime disability rights activists. One of the most important aspects of the disability rights movement was the focus on independent living, which emerged in California in the 1960s. Five decades later, people with disabilities are still on the front lines, often getting arrested in Washington DC . What gains have they made and what are they still fighting for?  That’s on the next Your Call with Rose Aguilar and You.

On the Nov. 18, 2012 edition of Work with Marty Nemko, I'll moderate a debate: Is the Americans with Disabilities Act a net positive for the workplace and for society?

Taking the affirmative side will be top disabilities advocate, who has argued before the Supreme Court, Claudia Center. She'll be debating libertarian Cato Institute senior fellow who also runs Overlawyered.com, Walter Olson.

In the 2nd half of the show, I'll do three-minute career makeovers on callers.

Chuck Finney is joined by a panel from the San Francisco Bar Association to discuss the Americans with Disabilities Act protections for persons with disabilities.
