The Effects of Law

Posted By Elgin Hushbeck

I was working on my online class, and just realized something. Normally when a student writes me because they have a problem, I try to work with them to see what I can do to help them out. However, I just had another ADA (American with Disabilities Act) student, and I it struck me that I have to act completely differently than I would normally act. Rather than write back asking if there is anything I can do to help, I cannot reply at all. Instead I have to transfer the entire subject to the ADA-compliance officer who is someone trained in all the nuances of the law. This is because one careless word, and the university could be liable for huge fines.
