Is it a violation of ADA to deny someone extra absences as a result of a disability that limits mobility? I was told that I would be allowed the allotted 10 days, as well as any additional days with a doctor’s note. Thing is, when I’m having an especially bad day, I don’t even leave my bed. Not to see a doctor or anything. Anyways, if the school continues with this, is it a violation of ADA? How should I go about handling this?
I’m really not sure, because I’m not a lawyer yet. but I would think so you should talk to a lawyer
Hi. So I have a bit of a dilemma. My grandmother is almost 90 and can barely walk, can't bathe or change her own clothes, is in pain, falls down a lot and is unable to get up, etc. She lives alone in a really old house in the middle of nowhere, and it's not going well for her, but she insists on independence. Are my family and I right to try to convince her to move out/get assistance? Or does this fall under the umbrella of not allowing disabled people their own agency?
that is a very interesting question. You should allow her independence and making her own choices. However, you can strongly convince her that it would be in her best interest to seek some sort of help because you are concerned for her well-being
