Disability Discrimination and Failure to Accommodate
Federal and State law prohibit an employer from discriminating against an employee or applicant for employment because they have a disability. These laws also mandate that an employer reasonably accommodate a person with an actual disability so as to make it possible for them to perform the essential functions of a job so they can obtain and retain employment. The purposes of these statutes was to insure that people with disabilities can participate to the maximum possible extent in the economic life of our society. If you believe you have been terminated, denied an employment opportunity, or denied an accommodation necessary for you to work you should consult with an Employment Lawyer promptly.
