Summary Although passed into law with high expectations, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has mostly failed in enabling those with mental disabilities to fight discrimination in the workplace. In Hollow Promises, Susan Stefan explores the reasons for this failure and points to how the courts, government, and employers may finally make good on the ADA's seemingly hollow promises of rights. Those with mental disabilities, like most people, want to work to support themselves and find respect and personal fulfillment. But because of engrained prejudices against those with a record of disability, obtaining and holding a job can be an epic task. This book witnesses the difficulties that people with mental disabilities may have in finding and keeping employment and describes how the ADA has affected this problem. Filled with detailed descriptions of employment cases and sharp analysis of the law, this provocative book is essential reading for lawyers, employers, therapists, people with mental disabilities, and all those seeking just employment practice.
