Discrimination Based On A Disability Is Illegal
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against employees with disabilities, including mental disabilities. Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop discrimination from occurring. Examples of mental disability discrimination can include:
- Failure to accommodate your disability or disorder
- Failure to allow you time off to attend appointments with doctors or therapists
- Not allowing you enough time to complete your tasks, based on your different abilities
- Giving you the worst shifts or assignments
- Employers or employees making jokes or harassing you about your disability
- Firing or laying you off when your employer finds out about your mental disorder
- Not hiring you because of your mental disorder when you have the appropriate qualifications for the job
Our attorneys will sit down with you to discuss what happened and how we can help remedy the situation for you. You deserve the same respect, fair treatment and safe working environment that all of your co-workers have. We will fight for justice on your behalf.
