Professor Kat Macfarlane Speaks with The New York Times on Workplace Accommodations

Professor Kat Macfarlane, director of the College of Law’s Disability Law and Policy Program, was interviewed for The New York Times article “What a Human-Centered Approach Can Do for Workers With Disabilities.”

In the article, Macfarlane discusses her challenges getting accommodations as a faculty member of another law school. Even with the Americans with Disabilities Act, there are many obstacles to gaining needed accommodations.

“There’s a huge gap between what the law was intended to do and what the experience of employees with disabilities really are,” said Macfarlane.
