Abstract

This work considers courts' and scholars' approaches to the problem of disability harassment. It develops and critiques the analogy to race and sex harassment law and argues for the development of new legal remedies. It applies the insights of disability rights scholars who emphasize that people with disabilities are members of a minority group who face attitudinal barriers to participation in society on a plane of equality with others. Topics covered include harassment in the workplace, at school and in public accommodations, and the legal response to that conduct. The book closes with a discussion of social and legal reforms to eliminate disability harassment.

Keywords: disability rights, harassment, civil rights
