Employers must learn to value the disabledOn 28 Nov 2000 in Personnel Today When theDisability Discrimination Act was launched, the workplace was a key target andthe new law replaced a quota system that employers had ignored for decades. The thenTory Government was turning to the stick because it was clear that appealing tothe better nature of employers had failed. Four yearson, no less a figure than Prime Minister Tony Blair is set to launch a newinitiative for the Disability Rights Commission. The new campaign will askemployers to set an example by committing themselves to hitting targets toreduce discrimination. Is thislatest move a tacit admission that the Disability Discrimination Act has notworked? The legislation has not led to a sea-change in how employers view thedisabled – a recent survey showed four out of five had never even heard of theAct. And thecase law that has emerged from the Act, and which has given headaches to manypersonnel professionals, has not provided definitive answers to the fundamentalproblems in the Act – the difficulty of deciding what is “reasonable”discrimination and of defining who is disabled.What canbe done? First, the law should be amended so that it is clear that employersare only justified in discriminating against the disabled when the individualcannot perform the essential functions of the job or is a health and safetyhazard. However, no legislation in this grey area is ever going to be a perfectinstrument. Ultimatelyit is up to good employers to lead a culture change in the workplace. The pastrecord of UK companies is poor, but the latest initiative offers an opportunityto create a future where disabled people are included and valued – and that canonly be good for business.

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The New Jersey woman whose disappearance from Oak Beach led to the discovery of a serial killer’s dumping ground will finally be laid to rest—nearly five years after she went missing.Services for Shannan Gilbert will be held this week on Long Island, according to her family’s attorney, John Ray, of Miller Place-based Ray, Mitev & Associates. In December, the family had sought donations to pay for the burial and to rent a funeral home where an independent medical examiner could perform a second autopsy. But results of the second exam were not released.“Finally, we were able to raise money and convince funeral directors to donate services so that Shannan could be examined and buried,” Ray said. “Her remains have stayed in the Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office until now because the Suffolk Medical Examiner refused to allow Dr. Michael Baden, a renowned independent medical examiner, to examine Shannan’s remains.”Police were searching for Gilbert—a sex worker who was reported missing on May 1, 2010—when they discovered 10 sets of human remains along Ocean Parkway in December of that year. She was last seen fleeing the Oak Beach home of her last client, Joseph Brewer, who police have said is not a suspect in the deaths.The Suffolk County Medical Examiner’s office had only said that the cause of death is “undetermined” for Gilbert. Police have also said they suspect Gilbert—whose body was found in a marsh less than a mile from Brewer’s home—was not a victim of foul play. But Gilbert’s family believes that Shannan was killed by the same person behind the other murders, whose victims include other online escorts.Ray is representing Gilbert’s mother, Mari, in a lawsuit against Dr. Peter Hackett, who allegedly told her that he took Shannan in and drugged her before she went missing. Hackett later denied those claims in media interviews. Hackett, who has since moved to Florida, is also not a suspect in the deaths, police have said.Services for Gilbert will be held 11 a.m. Thursday at Amityville Cemetery, 55 Harrison Ave, in Amityville.
Not what he was. Not finished either.“I feel really good,” Braun recently told reporters. “I feel fortunate and thankful that I’m in this position, health-wise. I’d never take it for granted. But for anybody, when you have the adrenaline that’s added for this time of year, it helps you feel better physically.“I feel like I’m going on 25, not 35 right now.”When Braun was 25 … those were the days.A product of Granada Hills High, Braun hit .320 with 32 homers and 114 RBIs as a 25-year-old in 2009. That season was squarely between when he won the Rookie of the Year award in 2007 and the MVP in 2011.

There is a respect that everybody gives him.”A former MVP who is coming back to his Southern California roots for the series against the Dodgers, Braun has mostly slipped under the radar this week.From the Brewers side, the narratives have been about Yelich, the Westlake High product who is the presumptive 2018 NL MVP, and Milwaukee’s vaunted bullpen. Meanwhile, Braun keeps clipping along at age 34. With his playing time managed, Braun still hit 20 homers, with a .782 OPS.Now, though, the playoffs have provided enough built-in days off that Braun has once again become an everyday player.He was 5 for 13 in the division series sweep of the Colorado Rockies. Even with a 2-for-12 start to the NLCS, he was hitting .280 six games into the postseason. He’s also hit into some hard luck, including a 100 mph shot that was snagged by Dodgers third baseman Justin Turner on Tuesday night, though he finished 3 for 6 in the Brewers’ 13-inning loss in Game 4.Although the numbers aren’t what Braun did in his prime, he still holds a leadership role in the clubhouse. And he still has a swing that is the same as when he was the focal point of the team.“The constant is he’s got a beautiful baseball swing,” Counsell said. “It’s the swing that guys on the other team want to come watch in batting practice.” Since then, Braun went through the turmoil of a suspension for using performance-enhancing drugs. He’s seen his numbers gradually decline.He nearly saw a trade to the Dodgers, when they were shopping a slumping Yasiel Puig in 2016.Between those prime years and now, Craig Counsell went from being Braun’s teammate to his manager.Counsell appreciates the ways in which Braun has adapted.“Like every player, physically you change,” Counsell said. “And I think mentally you get sharper and smarter and wiser. He’s definitely played a role. And he’s done a really good job of recognizing where his role is as the team has evolved this year. I compliment him as much as anything for doing that.”Braun’s role this year has been of a less-than-full-time player. After repeated trips to the disabled list over the past few years, the Brewers decided this year to build in at least one day off a week for Braun. He started just 99 games.“And I think that’s not easy always for players to accept and to buy into,” Counsell said. “Ryan showed a lot of humility in accepting that and understanding that at times it was best for the team and best for himself.”Related Articles Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start
