Disability Is A State Of Mind

According to the U.S. Census Department, approximately fifty-four million Americans are disabled, or have considered themselves disabled at one time or another. Whether or not you have enough work credits to qualify for disability benefits. The appeal process in most states is called “Disability Reconsideration,” and involves sending your claim back to the State disability agency for evaluation by a different examiner than the one that denied the claim.

If a small business finds that accommodating a disability poses an undue hardship, they are not required to fulfill the legal obligation; however, a business owner or manager might be surprised to learn just how easy it can be to meet a minimum.

On doctrinaire grounds alone neither the medical model nor the social model would be privileged in explaining changes in circumstances such as those occurring now in the UK as exemplified by the fate of Remploy Ltd.
