Disability Discrimination

If you are a person with a disability, you know the many difficulties and obstacles that confront you every day. Despite your disability, you both want and need to be a productive member of society. But when your employer fails or refuses to afford you the opportunity to do so because of your physical or mental disability or medical condition, you may be a victim of unlawful disability discrimination.

 

Discrimination based on a perceived physical or mental disability — i.e., where an employer regards an employee as disabled, even though no actual disability exists, is also unlawful.

 

There are many forms of Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination can take many forms. For instance, an employee may be subjected to harassment, name calling, or other inappropriate behavior because of his or her disability. Disability discrimination in the workplace can also occur when an employee or prospective employee, because of his or her medical condition, is turned down for employment, unfairly disciplined (including receiving negative performance reviews), passed up for a raise or promotion, terminated or laid off, or is subjected to other acts that affect the terms and conditions of his or her employment.

 

Employers have specific obligations to its employees with disabilities

Not only are employers prohibited from discriminating against persons with disabilities, there are a number of laws in place that require employers to take affirmative steps to ensure that persons with disabilities are able to continue working despite a disability.

 

For instance, employers are required to provide disabled employees with a reasonable accommodation. A reasonable accommodation might include allowing a leave of absence, changing job duties or responsibilities, providing specialized equipment or furniture, or adjusting the work schedule, just to name a few.

 

Not only are employers required to provide reasonable accommodations, employers are also required to engage in a good-faith interactive process with employees and prospective employees to determine the accommodation needs of an employee with a disability.
