A NEW LEVEL
Beckley Disability Discrimination Lawyer
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, it is unlawful for an employer to treat any employees differently than the rest because of an illness or disability. This extends to the application and hiring process, pay, opportunities, promotions, benefits, disciplinary actions, termination and other employment-related factors. It also requires that the employer provides proper accommodations and equipment that will allow the employee to work comfortably and to his or her full potential.
Bluefield ADA Attorney — Achieving Equitable Work Accommodations For Disabled Individuals
ADA covers any individuals that meet the following requirements:
- A physical or mental ailment that limits or impairs one or more aspects of the person’s life
- Record and documentation of this disability
- Is considered to have the disability by others
Generally this person is given restrictions by his or her physician that may limit potential at work. The law requires that employers be understanding of these limitations and work with the employee to find a suitable arrangement.
At the Law Office of Stephen P. New, our lawyers are committed to advocating for disabled individuals fighting for equal treatment in the workplace. Employers have a duty to treat these employees fairly and allow them to continue on in their work with the proper accommodations.
Should your employer fail to do so, there are legal steps that you can take to ensure you are provided a fair and equitable work environment. We will help you explore those options and fight on your behalf to see your rights protected.
