Knowledgeable Guidance For Disability Discrimination
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) gives workers with disabilities the right to a workplace free from discrimination. This includes reasonable accommodations for a disability that affects a person’s job role. Elizabeth D. Tate, Attorney at Law, protects the rights of people in Phoenix who have experienced employment discrimination because of a disability.
Defending The Rights Of Workers With Disabilities
Many employer actions may qualify as disability discrimination, including:
- Refusing to train a person because of a disability
- Denying accommodations with reasonable costs
- Lowering a person’s pay or demoting him or her because of a disability
- Firing a person with a disability even though he or she can complete essential job tasks
Some employers may not tell employees of their right to ask for accommodations. These businesses may also refuse to make accommodations or not provide adequate accommodations, which then leads to termination. If you experience disability employment discrimination, contact our lawyer so that we can start building your case.
What Are Claims By Association?
If an employer discriminates against a person because of his or her relationship with someone who has a disability, she or he may be able to file a claim by association. For example, if an employer refuses to hire a parent because his or her child has a disability, the parent may be able to file a claim.
