The EEOC [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] has published Guidelines to assist agencies in hiring and promoting disabled employees. Obviously, these Guidelines can be helpful as well to other employers, public and private.
The Senate on 9/11 passed the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments of 2008 and after the House goes along [it is expected to] and the President signs it, it'll become law. The law was created to reject the various holdings of the U.S. Supreme Court [and lower courts] which eviscerated the meaning and usefulness of the ADA. The sponsor of the Senate bill was Senator Tom Harkin of Iowa. More details regarding the legislation are found here.
I received a phone call early this morning with an inquiry from one of my credit card companies about whether I had made a purchase yesterday at a certain location. Not only did I not recall making that purchase, much less at that location, I couldn't have made the purchase since it was for something related to a Dell computer and anyone who knows me knows I only use Mac computers. I called the fraud division of the credit card company and confirmed this was a stolen number [I actually had the card in my possession] and the purchases were not mine. We closed the account, but now I am curious about how someone used my credit card number to purchase items without having the actual card [thus missing the 3 digit verification number on the opposite side]. I hope they catch the thief.
