Employment Law

Disability Discrimination

Disabilities are not always something that can be seen. If you believe you have been discriminated against because of a certain type of disability you have rights. 

Although employers are prohibited by federal and state law from discriminating against an individual because of a disability, employers do not always comply with the laws. If you are a victim of disability discrimination, the attorneys at Goldman Davis Krumholz & Dillon, P.C., can help you file a claim.

In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was created to protect the rights of employees with disabilities. Employers are required under the ADA to make accommodations for individuals with a wide range of disabilities such as:

  • Physical handicaps
  • Mental disabilities
  • Emotional disabilities
  • Serious illnesses

Accommodations include providing handicap accessibility in buildings and allowing time off for medical appointments. In addition, the ADA also prohibits public and private employers from discriminating against qualified individuals because of a disability. Unfortunately, some employers do not care about what the law says.

At Goldman Davis Krumholz & Dillon, P.C., we have assisted clients with handicap discrimination claims, whether the discrimination occurs during an interview, job training or with respect to promotions. Our attorneys strive to make sure that every person is given an equal opportunity in the workforce.
