Disability Rights Oregon, Oregon's protection and advocacy system, filed a class action federal lawsuit under Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) alleging that undue segregation of people with disabilities in workshops and other segregated employment is illegal discrimination.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of the United Cerebral Palsy Association of Oregon and Southwest Washington along with eight individuals representing thousands of Oregonians with intellectual or physical disabilities against the state's Governor and its Department of Human Services.
According to an article in "The Oregonian," advocates hope the lawsuit "will set a national precedent and end the practice of having people with disabilities to spend their days in sheltered workshops, where they complete repetitive or rote tasks for a sub-minimum wage and without the opportunity for training or advancement."
