    Animal Rights Law
    Federal Law
    This guide explains four key federal laws that govern the rights of tenants, and that may determine whether you have a right as a tenant to live with a companion animal, whether you rent a home, own a home that is governed by a homeowners' association, live in federally-assisted public housing for the elderly or disabled, or in federally assisted public housing that does not give such a preference to the elderly or disabled, or whether your housing is subsidized by a state or local government.
    Four Important Federal Laws
    1. Housing and Urban-Rural Recovery Act of 1983. Under this Act [FN 1] , no owner or manager of any federally assisted rental housing for elderly persons or persons with a disability may prohibit a tenant from having "common household pets." In addition, owners or mangers cannot discriminate against any person from admittance or continued occupancy of such housing because of ownership of a companion animal. [FN 2] If you live in a federally assisted housing unit, receiving subsidy from the federal government, that is designated for housing senior citizens or persons with a disability, your rental unit cannot prohibit you from keeping your animal companion with you in your home. If you live in such a housing unit, and you are being prevented from keeping a companion animal with you, put the owner or manager on notice that he or she is violating the Housing and Urban-Rural Recovery Act of 1983. Although landlords of senior citizen or disabled persons housing may not discriminate against those who have, or wish to acquire, companion animals. it is very important to note that the statute provides that such landlords are explicitly permitted to require the removal of an animal who is considered a "nuisance" or a threat to other persons in the community.

    The Americans with Disabilities Act, a federal law, protects individuals with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodations and communications services. Various agencies enforce the different Titles of this Act which deal with the separate areas of employment, transportation, etc.
    Title I of the ADA applies to businesses with 15 or more employees. Such employers may not discriminate in hiring or employment against persons with disabilities, mental or physical. They must also provide a reasonable accommodation to known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual, unless to do so would impose an undue hardship on the employer.
    A qualified individual with a disability means a person who, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of the job.

    California Legislature Dramatically Expands Protections Afforded to Disabled Workers
    By: David S. Warner November 2000 A Much Broader Definition of "Disability" Indeed, the Legislature expressly affirmed in AB 2222 the independence of California's proscription against disability discrimination in the workplace from the protections otherwise provided in the ADA. In so doing, it added to this bill language to discourage the courts from further relying on federal courts' interpretation of the formerly analogous ADA in the ongoing development of state disability discrimination law. New Causes of Action Against California Employers AB 2222 also expressly incorporates into the FEHA some of the federal ADA's existing prohibitions against certain inquiries of job applicants and employees. Employers will be prohibited under the FEHA from making medical, psychological, or disability-related inquiries of their applicants, with the caveat that employers may, however, "inquire into the ability of an applicant to perform job-related functions." The new law permits employers to require medical or psychological examinations or inquiries after extending an employment offer, but prior to the employee's first day of work, so long as the inquiry or examination is job-related, consistent with business necessity, and applied to all new employees in that job classification.

    The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) enacted broad non-discrimination protections for workers with disabilities, including those with psychiatric disabilities. The employment provisions, which took effect on July 26, 1992, prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability in virtually all aspects of employment. As in Title V of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the ADA requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for qualified applicants or employees with disabilities. But unlike the Rehabilitation Act, which only covered employers receiving grants, contracts, or other financial assistance from the federal government, the ADA now extends nondiscrimination requirements to all employers with 25 or more workers. Beginning two years later on July 26, 1994, employers with 15 or more workers must comply.

    For Special Olympics
    The mission of the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics is to raise funds for and awareness of the Special Olympics movement worldwide. Special Olympics is a program that daily reaffirms our beliefs that with hope, love and dedication we can see achievement and self-worth realized by any individual. It is our belief that persons with mental retardation by their involvement in Special Olympics show the community at large the true meaning of sports and a pure joy towards life. To further the Special Olympics philosophy, law enforcement carry a torch, representing the "Flame of Hope" and dedicate itself to the goals of continually increasing awareness and funds for Special Olympics athletes worldwide. The Law Enforcement Torch Run Began in Kansas in 1981. Wichita Police Chief Richard LaMunyon saw a need to raise funds for and awareness for Special Olympics. LaMunyon felt Special Olympics was a fitting cause to unite local law enforcement officers by giving them closer ties to the community, and to a very special population. After three years of successful runs in Kansas, LaMunyon presented the program to the International Chiefs's of Police (IACP). With the IACP"s enthusiastic support and leadership, the Torch Run expanded into seven states by 1985, 43 states by 1986, and all 50 states, and several foreign countries by 1987. Today, the number of foreign countries has risen to 31.

    ADA Law Regarding Employment of People with Disabilities
    The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) applies to companies with 15 or more employees. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is responsible for administering and enforcing the law. ADA defines disability. A person must meet one of three criteria:
    • Have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities such as walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, working.
      Have a record of such an impairment, such as former cancer patients or someone misclassified as developmentally disabled.
      Be regarded as having such an impairment. For example, an employer who believes an employee with high blood pressure should not be promoted to a high-stress position is prohibited by ADA from discriminating against the employee based on that belief.
    Exception: People currently illegally using drugs are not protected.

    Elder Law focuses on legal issues relating to people over the age of 55 and their families. Elder Law seeks to provide each client with the education and information necessary to understand the ever-growing complex issues and process of "growing older" in America. Through the preparation of appropriate legal documents, options and choices become available to the individual or family to manage future age-related mental or physical disabilities.
    The Websters Dictionary describes Aging as "the mental and physical changes that occur as we grow older." Attorneys who practice in the field of Elder Law frequently work with professionals in the fields of medicine, social work, long term care, and finance to maximize the client's options. The attorney works closely with these other professionals to meet the changing needs of the client. The information provided here is for seniors and their families to aid them in a better understanding of the field of Elder Law. Return to the Home Page of George S. Ingalls

    SECTION 15
  • Every individual is equal before and under the law and has the right to the equal protection and equal benefit of the law without discrimination and, in particular, without discrimination based on race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.
    Subsection (1) does not preclude any law, program or activity that has as its object the amelioration of conditions of disadvantaged individuals or groups including those that are disadvantaged because of race, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, sex, age or mental or physical disability.
  • The courts have held that section 15 also protects equality on the basis of other characteristics that are not specifically set out in it. For example, this section has been held to prohibit discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. The Supreme Court of Canada has stated that the purpose of section 15 is to protect those groups who suffer social, political and legal disadvantage in society. Discrimination occurs where, for example, a person, because of a personal characteristic, suffers disadvantages or is denied opportunities available to other members of society.

    Bonnie, Richard J. and John Monahan, editors Mental Disorder, Work Disability, and the Law . xiii, 308 p., 12 line drawings, 32 tables. 1996 Series: (MF) The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Series on Mental Health and Development Cloth $30.00sp 0-226-06450-6 Fall 1996 A barrage of "handbooks" and "resource manuals" aimed at employers and legal practitioners on the employment rights of people with disabilities has begun to appear. Until now, however, there has been no serious book-length scholarly treatment of how mental disorder can affect work, how work can affect mental disorder, and the role of law in addressing employment discrimination based on mental rather than physical disability. In Mental Disorder, Work Disability and the Law, the editors bring together original work by leading scholars who have studied mental disorder and work disability from the fields of sociology, psychology, psychiatry, law, and economics. The authors' contributions build upon one another to create the first integrated account of the important policy issues at stake when law deals with the rights of mentally disordered citizens to work when they are able to, and to receive benefits when they are not. This book will be of great value to scholars in law and the mental health professions and to policy makers and the administrators of disability programs.
