Vigorous Advocacy For Disabled Individuals Facing Discrimination
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal law that protects individuals with disabilities in the workplace. Specifically, employers must make reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities unless these accommodations constitute an undue burden on the business. The New York State and New York City Human Rights Laws offer similar legal protections to disabled individuals in the workplace. State and city laws also apply to housing.
Despite these legal protections, many employers continue to discriminate against disabled employees and job seekers. These acts of discrimination can include:
- Failing to provide reasonable accommodations
- Creating a hostile working environment (i.e., a pattern of offensive comments)
- Firing, failing to hire, demoting, or failing to promote a person based on his or her disability
- Retaliating against a disabled employee for exercising his or her rights
Discrimination in the workplace can negatively impact a person’s life in many ways. If you have encountered disability discrimination in the workplace, it is vital to hire a lawyer who understands these laws and how they apply to your unique situation. For years, people across New York City and beyond have put their trust in the Law Offices of G. Oliver Koppell & Associates.
