Disability Discrimination Attorney

Vague Guidelines Allow Discrimination Creep

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires that employers make "reasonable accommodations" for employees or potential employees with physical or mental disabilities. However, the act stops short of saying exactly what those "reasonable accommodations" might be. This lack of clarity, while perhaps well-intentioned, leaves the door open for potential discriminatory employment practices that can leave otherwise-qualified people with disabilities in the lurch. If you suspect that you may have been discriminated against in the workplace based on disability factors beyond your control, you may have grounds for a lawsuit. Nationwide disability discrimination lawyer Todd M. Friedman can help you make sense of your situation and defend your right to equal employment opportunity.

Finding The Bright Line In A Murky Law

While the law is unclear about what constitutes "reasonable accommodation," there are areas of the ADA that are less up for debate. For example, an employer cannot use your disability as a reason to discriminate in matters of:

  • Pay
  • Training
  • Benefits
  • Hiring
  • Promotion
  • Termination

The job market can be tough enough without a disability. But if you sense that an employer may be brushing you off for reasons that have nothing to do with your ability to do the job, contact our office to find out your rights.

It might be difficult to know for sure if you have a valid claim of disability discrimination. At the Law Offices of Todd M. Friedman, P.C., you can speak directly with your attorney in your case, saving time and alleviating uncertainty.
