Americans with Disabilities Act
Are you disabled and feeling discriminated against when applying for a job, or working at your current place of employment? Watch this video to learn about the Americans with Disabilities Act and whether your employer is required to provide you with reasonable accommodation to help you perform your job responsibilities.
The other day, we had a client come in. He had several questions about the Americans with Disabilities Act. Whether or not that law provided protections to him due to his particular condition, and whether or not his condition constituted a disability. Those questions can be very complicated and can require a detailed legal analysis. We recommend that if you have any questions regarding whether or not your condition meets the legal standard of a disability under the law, we recommend that you come to an experienced employment attorney.
What we would do if you come to us is sit down with you, gather all of the facts and details related to your medical condition, help you determine whether or not your condition meets the definition of a disability under the law. Some people may have conditions that they think are not disabilities. There is a high probability that your condition is, in fact, a disability under the law and that you are afforded certain protections. The employer may be required to provide you with a reasonable accommodation to help you perform the essential functions of your position.
