Your Rights Under the ADA
A disabled employee is a person with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more life activities. This may also include people with a record of such impairment, those perceived as having such impairment, or those associated with the care of a disabled person. If you are handicapped or have another disability, the ADA applies to you.
The ADA prohibits all types of discrimination on the basis of disability, including discrimination in:
- Laying off
- Assigning jobs
- Paying and distributing benefits
- Failure to make reasonable accommodations
Too often, employers ignore the guidelines outlined in the ADA. They may fail to make reasonable accommodations. They may refuse to hire you, even if you have the necessary qualifications. If you suspect disability discrimination, do not wait to contact our top Milwaukee disability discrimination attorneys. Our firm helps you seek the justice you deserve and works for your employment rights.
