Abstract:     
This article reviews recent cases addressing alleged violations of the Rehabilitation Act and, in particular, two provisions that the Act which prohibit discrimination: (1) the requirement that employers working on certain government contracts take affirmative action to employ qualified handicaps, and (2) prohibition against qualified handicaps being denied participation in or benefits from any federally financially assisted program. Two major issues face the courts concerning these provisions. They are whether the claimant has a private right to bring a cause of action and whether the claimant was the intended beneficiary of the federal financial assistance.
