At our firm, you can benefit from the 30-plus years of combined experience our employment attorneys bring to the table.
Your Rights In The Workplace
A physical or mental disability should not cost you your employment. So long as you are still able to perform the essential duties of your job with reasonable accommodations, and those accommodations would not cause undue hardship for your employer, you can claim the protections of state and federal law.
Unfortunately, employers do not always honor employees’ rights. Disability discrimination can take many forms. For example, your employer may be held legally responsible for:
- Failure to accommodate: Has your employer denied your request for an accommodation without legally sufficient grounds for doing so? Or has your employer discounted your disability? These actions may amount to ADA violations.
- Failure to engage in the interactive process: Employers must make a good-faith attempt to determine whether reasonable accommodations are available for an employee with disabilities. They cannot simply refuse to consider your request.
- Retaliation: Your employer cannot take adverse employment action against you for reporting discrimination, requesting a reasonable accommodation, filing a workers’ compensation claim or pursuing disability benefits.
If you are facing disability discrimination in the workplace, don’t suffer in silence. The lawyers at Perkins & Associates are passionate about standing up for employees who have been wronged.
