Disability Discrimination Attorneys
The Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Employment and Housing Act provide certain protections for people with disabilities. An employer must provide “reasonable accommodation” to people with disabilities to allow them to perform their job duties. An employer cannot discriminate against a disabled person in terms of hiring, job promotion and termination. An employer cannot tolerate harassment of employees with disabilities.
If an employee with a disability is discriminated against in these or other ways, the employee may be entitled to compensation for:
- Lost past wages
- Lost future wages
- Damages for pain and suffering
- Attorney fees
- Punitive damages in certain cases
