This week we interviewed Nicole B. Porter at the University of Toledo College of Law. Nicole has served as Associate Dean for Academic Affairs at Toledo. Her research interests focus on the employment rights of women and individuals with disabilities. She teaches Employment Discrimination, Disability Law, Criminal Law, Contracts, and Feminist Legal Theory.
Nicole’s expertise on the Americans with Disabilities Act is nonpareil, and she discussed several dimensions of ADA practice and advocacy. Nicole’s recent scholarship in the area includes Special Treatment Stigma After the ADA Amendments Act, The Difficulty Accommodating Healthcare Workers, Withdrawn Accommodations, and The New ADA Backlash. The show includes both background on the ADA’s purpose and initial reception, as well as up-to-date analysis of its present application.
