The Law of Unintended Consequences

This is a short but fascinating video (if you're a building contractor, employer, or a total geek) by Stephen Dubner - co-author of "Freakonomics", - which will be on the NYT bestseller list again this Christmas when it comes out in paperback.
If an employer can be sued by a disabled employee for not being 100% in compliance with the Americans With Disabilities Act, does this make the employer more likely or less likely to hire Americans With Disabilities?

(I'm making an assumption here that the book will be in paperback by Christmas. If those guys are smart enough to write a book this good, they're smart enough to know when to release the paperback....)
