Let us show you why we have been chosen by countless clients within our community and how we have successfully represented them in the past.

HAVE YOUR RIGHTS AS AN EMPLOYEE BEEN VIOLATED?

You probably spend the majority of your day in the workplace. At no point should you expect to feel unsafe, uncomfortable, threatened, or prejudiced against while at work. Unfortunately, instances such as these occur more often than you think.

In representing employers and employees, there are common complaints that are generally received across the board. We can handle any type of discrimination matter effectively, helping protect our clients’ rights from start to finish.

If you have been the victim of disability discrimination, or any form of harassment within the workplace, it is important to consult a legal professional immediately.

What is Disability Discrimination?

Disability discrimination means treating individuals differently in employment because of their disability, perceived disability, or association with an individual with a disability. Some examples of disability discrimination may include:

  • Discriminating on the basis of physical or mental disability in various aspects of employment, including recruitment, firing, hiring, training, job assignments, promotions, pay, benefits, lay off, leave and all other employment-related activities.
  • Harassing an employee on the basis of his or her disability.
  • Asking job applicants questions about their past or current medical conditions, or requiring job applicants to take medical exams.
  • Creating or maintaining a workplace that includes substantial physical barriers to the movement of people with physical disabilities.
  • Refusing to provide a reasonable accommodation to employees with a physical or mental disability that would allow them to work.

If any of these things have happened to you on the job, you may have suffered disability discrimination. If you have a disability and are qualified to do a job, there are federal and state laws protecting you from job discrimination, harassment, and retaliation on the basis of your disability. You are also protected if you are a victim of discrimination because of your association (family, business, social or other relationship) with an individual with a disability.
