Disability discrimination occurs if your employer has taken an adverse employment action because of your disability, or failed to make reasonable accommodations in response to a request to a disabled individual’s request for modification of working conditions. At Gilbert Alden, we consult with and represented individuals in lawsuits in negotiations with public and private companies who have been discriminated against based on their disability or who’s employers have failed to make reasonable accommodations to allow them to perform their jobs despite their disabilities.
The process of holding an employer accountable for disability discrimination is often complex, involving filings with state and federal agencies, including but not limited to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. Tight deadlines often exist and if you feel you have been discriminated against because of your disability, it is important that you speak with the lawyer as soon as you have suffered adverse employment action, which might include but is not limited to termination from employment based on your disability.
Please contact the lawyers at Gilbert Alden for a free consultation if you think you are a victim of discrimination.
