05 Feb When Disability Discrimination Limits a Person’s Future Employability
The cruel thing about disability discrimination, both for people who are already disabled or become disabled while employed with a specific employer, is that it is not easy to get another job, despite the fact that there are laws that prohibit disability discrimination for applicants for employment. It still happens and employers do get away with it, especially if the disability is obvious.
If someone is wrongfully terminated because of disability discrimination, one could argue that the damage goes beyond the income they lost from being fired because it would be more difficult to find another job.
Similarly, someone who is wrongfully terminated because of a disability could arguably experience substantial emotional distress, and in that case, emotional distress damages could possibly be recovered.
