Victories and Settlements
Disability Rights Are Civil Rights
At Bokhour Law Group, we represent employees experiencing workplace disability discrimination. Disability discrimination refers to unequal treatment of employees due to their disability, perceived disability, or affiliation with an individual with a disability.
Regardless of whether a person’s disability is visible or not, the act of treating them differently or denying reasonable accommodations can be unlawful.
This can manifest in various forms such as:
- Discrimination throughout the employment process, including: recruitment, hiring, training, job assignments, promotions, pay, benefits, layoff, and leave.
- Harassment of an employee based on their disability.
- Inquiring about a job applicant’s medical history.
- A workplace with significant physical barriers for individuals with physical disabilities.
- Refusing to provide reasonable accommodations to employees with physical or mental disabilities.
If you have experienced any of these scenarios in your employment, you may have been subject to disability discrimination.
Federal and state laws exist to safeguard individuals with disabilities from workplace discrimination, harassment, and retaliation.
These laws also extend protection to individuals who are discriminated against due to their association with a disabled person, whether it be a familial, business, social, or other relationship.
The ADA And Disability Rights
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other state and federal laws safeguard individuals with disabilities from job discrimination, harassment, and retaliation based on their disability.
According to the law, a person is considered to have a disability if they have a physical or mental condition that substantially limits a major life activity, such as walking, talking, seeing, hearing, or learning. The law also covers individuals with a history of a disability or who experience an adverse employment action due to a substantial physical or mental impairment they currently have. A medical condition does not need to be long-term, permanent, or severe to be substantially limiting.
Disability discrimination has severe implications for employees. Laws exist to protect disabled persons and if an employer violates these laws, they can and should be held liable. Employees who experience workplace discrimination can file a lawsuit against their employer to recover damages such as lost wages, emotional distress, and attorney’s fees.
