Protection for Employees with Mental Disabilities

15 Aug Protection for Employees with Mental Disabilities

The law prohibits discrimination against people with mental disabilities just as much as it prohibits discrimination because of physical disabilities. For examples, people with depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia or anxiety may qualify as disabled, and be protected from discrimination by their employers. I will explore the specifics of mental disability discrimination in future blog posts, so stay tuned.

In the meantime, if you believe that you have been discriminated against because of a mental disability, it is important to speak with a labor and employment attorney right away. A labor and employment attorney can help you evaluate whether you have experienced disability discrimination.
