There are more opportunities than ever for those receiving benefits from Social Security Disability Insurance [Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)] and SSI [Supplemental Security Income (SSI)] to learn job skills and find permanent employment in CARROLL IOWA.

If you are looking for work, or are new to the workforce, familiarize yourself with the Americans with Disabilities Act [Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)] of 1990 , a federal civil rights law designed to prevent discrimination and enable people with disabilities to participate fully in all aspects of society.

A fundamental principle of the ADA is that people with disabilities who want to work and are qualified to do so should have equal employment opportunities.

This booklet answers questions you may have about your employment rights under the ADA.

How do I know if I am protected by the ADA?

To be protected, you must be a qualified individual with a disability. This means you must have a disability as defined by the ADA. Under the ADA, you have a disability if he has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity such as hearing, seeing, speaking, thinking, walking, breathing, or performing manual tasks. You must also be able to perform the job for which you want to be hired, or for which you have been hired, with or without reasonable accommodation.

What are my rights under the ADA?

The ADA protects you from discrimination in all employment practices, including: job application procedures, hiring, firing, training, pay, promotions, benefits and licenses. You are also right not to be harassed because of your disability and your employer can not fire or discipline you for asserting your rights under the ADA. More importantly, you have the right to request reasonable for the hiring process and employment functional adaptations.

What is a "reasonable accommodation"?

A reasonable accommodation is any modification or adjustment to a job, work environment or how they usually do things that would allow you to apply for a job, work, or enjoy equal access to the benefits available to others in the workplace. There are many things that can help people with disabilities work successfully. Some of the most common types of accommodations are:

  • physical changes, such as installing a ramp or modifying the workspace or services;
  • sign language interpreters for the deaf or blind readers;
  • provide a quiet space or other changes to reduce noise distractions for someone with mental disabilities;
  • training and written materials in accessible formats such as Braille or audio cassette or computer discs;
  • TTY for deaf can use the telephone, and computer hardware and software to facilitate computer access for people with visual impairments or who have difficulty using their hands; and
  • licenses disability who needs treatment.

    What should I do if I think I need a reasonable accommodation?

    If you think you need a reasonable accommodation for the job application process or at work, you must apply. You may request a reasonable accommodation at any time during the job application, or any time before or after starting work. How do I request a reasonable accommodation? Just let your employer who needs an adjustment or change because of their disability. Needless to complete special forms or use technical language to do so. For example, if you use a wheelchair and it does not fit under your desk, you should talk to your supervisor. This is a request for a reasonable accommodation. A doctor´s note requesting disability leave or saying that you can work with certain restrictions is also a request for reasonable accommodation. What happens after making a request for a reasonable accommodation? Once you have made the request for reasonable accommodation, the employer must discuss the options available to you. If you have a disability that is not obvious, the employer may require documentation that demonstrates and explains why you need a reasonable accommodation. You and your employer must work together to determine an appropriate accommodation.

    What do you know about abuse of women in CARROLL IOWA ?

    Click the red escape button above to immediately leave this site if your abuser may see you reading it.

    Signs of abuse

    It can be hard to know if you´re being abused. You may think that your husband is allowed to make you have sex. That´s not true. Forced sex is rape, no matter who does it. You may think that cruel or threatening words are not abuse. They are. And sometimes emotional abuse is a sign that a person will become physically violent.

    Below is a list of possible signs of abuse. Some of these are illegal. All of them are wrong. You may be abused if your partner:

    • Monitors what you´re doing all the time
    • Unfairly accuses you of being unfaithful all the time
    • Prevents or discourages you from seeing friends or family
    • Prevents or discourages you from going to work or school
    • Gets very angry during and after drinking alcohol or using drugs
    • Controls how you spend your money
    • Controls your use of needed medicines
    • Decides things for you that you should be allowed to decide (like what to wear or eat)
    • Humiliates you in front of others
    • Destroys your property or things that you care about
    • Threatens to hurt you, the children, or pets
    • Hurts you (by hitting, beating, pushing, shoving, punching, slapping, kicking, or biting)
    • Uses (or threatens to use) a weapon against you
    • Forces you to have sex against your will
    • Controls your birth control or insists that you get pregnant
    • Blames you for his or her violent outbursts
    • Threatens to harm himself or herself when upset with you
    • Says things like, "If I can´t have you then no one can."

    If you think someone is abusing you, get help. Abuse can have serious physical and emotional effects. No one has the right to hurt you.

    Healthy vs. unhealthy relationships

    Sometimes a relationship might not be abusive, but it might have some serious problems that make it unhealthy. If you think you might be in an unhealthy relationship, you should be able to talk to your partner about your concerns. If you feel like you can´t talk to your partner, try talking to a trusted friend, family member, or counselor. Consider calling a confidential hotline to get the support you need and to explore next steps. If you´re afraid to end the relationship, call a hotline for help.

    Signs of an unhealthy relationship include:

    • Focusing all your energy on your partner
    • Dropping friends and family or activities you enjoy
    • Feeling pressured or controlled a lot
    • Having more bad times in the relationship than good
    • Feeling sad or scared when with your partner

    Signs of a healthy relationship include:

    • Having more good times in the relationship than bad
    • Having a life outside the relationship, with your own friends and activities
    • Making decisions together, with each partner compromising at times
    • Dealing with conflicts by talking honestly
    • Feeling comfortable and able to be yourself
    • Feeling able to take care of yourself
    • Feeling like your partner supports you

    If you feel confused about your relationship, a mental health professional can help. Remember, you deserve to be treated with respect.

    20 Ways You Can Help Fight Human Trafficking

    After first learning about human trafficking, many people want to help in some way but do not know how. Here are just a few ideas for your consideration.

    1. Learn the red flags that may indicate human trafficking and ask follow up questions so that you can help identify a potential trafficking victim. Human trafficking awareness training is available for inpiduals, businesses, first responders, law enforcement, and federal employees.

    2. In the United States, call the National Human Trafficking Resource Center at 1-888-373-7888 (24/7) to get help and connect with a service provider in your area, report a tip with information on potential human trafficking activity; or learn more by requesting training, technical assistance, or resources. Call federal law enforcement directly to report suspicious activity and get help from the Department of Homeland Security at 1-866-347-2423 (24/7), or submit a tip online at, or from the U.S. Department of Justice at 1-888-428-7581 from 9:00am to 5:00pm (EST). Victims, including undocumented inpiduals, are eligible for services and immigration assistance.

    3. Be a conscientious consumer. Discover your Slavery Footprint, and check out the Department of Labor’s List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor. Encourage companies, including your own, to take steps to investigate and eliminate slavery and human trafficking in their supply chains and to publish the information for consumer awareness.

    4. Incorporate human trafficking information into your professional associations’ conferences, trainings, manuals, and other materials as relevant [example].

    5. Join or start a grassroots anti-trafficking coalition.

    6. Meet with and/or write to your local, state, and federal government representatives to let them know that you care about combating human trafficking in your community, and ask what they are doing to address human trafficking in your area.

    7. Distribute public awareness materials available from the Department of Health and Human Services or Department of Homeland Security.

    8. Volunteer to do victim outreach or offer your professional services to a local anti-trafficking organization.

    9. Donate funds or needed items to an anti-trafficking organization in your area.

    10. Organize a fundraiser and donate the proceeds to an anti-trafficking organization.

    11. Host an awareness event to watch and discuss a recent human trafficking documentary. On a larger scale, host a human trafficking film festival.

    12. Encourage your local schools to partner with students and include the issue of modern day slavery in their curriculum. As a parent, educator, or school administrator, be aware of how traffickers target school-aged children.

    13. Set up a Google alert to receive current human trafficking news.

    14. Write a letter to the editor of your local paper about human trafficking in your community.

    15. Start or sign a human trafficking petition.

    16. Businesses: Provide internships, job skills training, and/or jobs to trafficking survivors. Consumers: Purchase items made by trafficking survivors such as from Jewel Girls or Made by Survivors.

    17. Students: Take action on your campus. Join or establish a university or secondary school club to raise awareness about human trafficking and initiate action throughout your local community. Consider doing one of your research papers on a topic concerning human trafficking. Professors: Request that human trafficking be an issue included in university curriculum. Increase scholarship about human trafficking by publishing an article, teaching a class, or hosting a symposium.

    18. Law Enforcement Officials: Join or start a local human trafficking task force.

    19. Mental Health or Medical Providers: Extend low-cost or free services to human trafficking victims assisted by nearby anti-trafficking organizations. Train your staff on how to identify the indicators of human trafficking and assist victims.

    20. Attorneys: Look for signs of human trafficking among your clients. Offer pro-bono services to trafficking victims or anti-trafficking organizations. Learn about and offer to human trafficking victims the legal benefits for which they are eligible. Assist anti-trafficking NGOs with capacity building and legal work.
