Spotted this in the employment law news.


On the one hand, I agree with the legal interpretation in the letter. On the other hand, I wonder if this creates an impossible burden on employers with huge numbers of applicants?

Something not discussed in the letter: if accepting a GED or job related experience in lieu of education avoids the need to do individual assessments of everyone who claims they did not get a diploma because of LD or some other disability. If I were an ambulance-chasing shyster I'd be out recruiting every high school dropout who might arguably have some LD I could get to start flooding organizations with applications for every job that required high school education or higher.
