Definition of Discrimination

 DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 states that private employers, state and local governments, labor unions, and employment agencies may not discriminate against someone because of a disability. The ADA covers employers with fifteen or more employees.

These employers may not:

·     Hire or fire a person based on their disability

·     Ask persons in an interview about the existence, nature, or severity of a disability

·     Promote a person based on their disability

·     Demote a person based on their disability

·     Pay a person a different salary based on their disability

·     Withhold training from a person with a disability

·     Retaliate against an employee who files a claim of disability discrimination

The employee must still be capable of performing the necessary aspects of his or her job, with or without accommodations provided by the employer, as long as it doesn’t provide an “undue hardship” to the employer. These accommodations may include things such as making the work facility accessible to those with disabilities, modifying work schedules, and providing access to modified equipment.

If you believe that you are a victim of disability discrimination in the workplace and you believe that your job rights have been violated you have the right to file a charge of discrimination.  This is a required step before you are allowed to file a discrimination lawsuit.  Click here to get help now.  You may deserve compensation.
