Workplace disability discrimination is grounds for legal claim

Indiana employees with a hearing impairment may be interested in how this is covered under the Americans with Disabilities Act. If the disability qualifies, the person will be protected from employment discrimination based on their hearing impairment.

Disability discrimination and the EEOC process

After an Indiana worker's disability discrimination claim has been processed through the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agency will either determine that the charge has been substantiated or they will send a notice to the person who complained notifying them of the EEOC's dismissal. People will have 90 days from the date of the notice to file a civil lawsuit. If they wait beyond this time frame, their ability to sue will be time-barred.

Disability discrimination issues

Indiana employers who are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act can face repercussions for the adverse treatment of a disabled employee. The law provides protections for workers with temporary or permanent physical or mental disabilities from being treated negatively due to the impairment. Additionally, employers are prohibited from treating individuals negatively based on a belief of impairment regardless of whether such an issue is real or only suspected. Further, an individual may not be the object of discrimination because of a relationship to a disabled person. Reasonable accommodations must be made unless there is undue expense or difficulty for the employer in doing so.

Indiana workers with disabilities protected by law

Indiana workers with disabilities are protected from discrimination in the workforce by the Americans with Disabilities Act. Under the ADA, an employer with fifteen or more employees is required to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with disabilities. The act covers all phases of employment from the application process to termination, and it is designed to provide the same job opportunities to disabled employees that non-disabled employees enjoy.
