02 Aug Possible Remedies for Disability Discrimination
There are a number of remedies for disability discrimination in employment. If you’re fired from your job because of your disability, or if your employer refuses to accommodate your disability, which forces you to resign, then you could be entitled to damages for lost wages. Also, depending on how long it takes you to find a comparable job to replace the job that you lost, you could be entitled to lost future of income.
In addition, if you are terminated or forced to quit because of a disability, you likely will experience emotional distress as a result. Terminating an employee with a disability could be devastating. Moreover, it probably comes as no surprise that employees who have a disability, particularly an obvious disability, have additional challenges in securing new work.
