Request Description

Barry owns a small software development firm. Barry has an employee who needs special accommodations in order to be able to perform the functions of his job. These accommodations would cost $10,000; an amount Barry believes is more than he should have to spend. The Americans with Disabilities Act provides that an employer is required to make “reasonable accommodations” for an employee with a disability, but does not define what constitutes a “reasonable accommodation.” Assume that size of the employer (by some measure) determines the maximum amount that would be considered reasonable for a particular employer to spend. Under the principles of stare decisis, which of the following is true? 

A. If a similar-size employer had been required to spend $15,000 in the past, then Barry would be required to spend the $10,000. 

B. If a similar-size employer had not been required to spend $15,000 in the past, then Barry would be required to spend $10,000. 

C. If a similar-size employer had not been required to spend $15,000 in the past, then Barry would not be required to spend $10,000. 

D. If a similar-size employer had been required to spend $15,000 in the past, this would not be relevant in Barry’s case because it happened in the past.
