University of Baltimore Law Review


This Article examines state and federal law dealing with the obligation of employers to provide employment opportunities to handicapped individuals. The author surveys all pertinent statutes and implementing regulations and explores possible constitutional arguments available in handicap discrimination cases, analyzing the rights and remedies available to handicapped employees, the obligations of and defenses available to employers, and the issues expected to dominate litigation. The author concludes that the regulations promulgated by administrative agencies, pursuant to legislative mandate, impose onerous standards for compliance and may exceed the bounds of statutory authority in some respects.
