Abstract:

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to present an analysis of a policy aimed at addressing the unequal treatment of individuals with mental and/or physical impairments, particularly focusing on the mistreatment of this population in the area of employment under Title I. This analysis will explore the Americans with Disabilities Act 1990 (ADA) using Gil's framework. The major findings indicate that individuals with disabilities typically have a lower annual income and a higher chance of living in poverty, compared to non-disabled individuals. This population has encountered discrimination in various areas of life (e.g., employment, housing, public accommodations, education, transportation, communication, recreation, institutionalization, health services, voting, and access to public services), which has lead to their unequal treatment within society. These findings suggest that social workers can take dynamic leadership roles in formulating collaborative models to alleviate the historical mistreatment that individuals with disabilities have faced.
