Tim's Coffee Shop Journal


Tim's Coffee Shop Journal

Upon my research of this scenario, I came across the web page of the United States Departments of Labor. There is a section labeled the Employment Law Guide. Under this tab it breaks down the federal the federal contracts – Equal opportunity in employment: “ Employment Nondiscrimination and equal opportunity for qualified Individuals with disabilities. Under section 503 of the rehabilitation Act of 1973 as amended,29U.S.C. 793, and its implementing regulations, covered employers with federal contracts or subcontracts must not discriminate against applicants or employees on the basis of disability.”
Now with that being said a hospital I believe has a federal contract and must accept the applicants application. In this case if a person that has a handicap or a disability but is able to do a job must not be discriminated against for the handicap or disability. This application should be handled in same way that it would be handled if it were turned in by a person that is not disabled.
If this person is turned away because of this disability it is a violation of this Act and the person who discriminated against person would be in violation and could be fired.
In Tim’s case these such laws would not apply because he does not operate under a federal contract.
