What Is Disability Discrimination?
Our attorney interprets the guidelines of the law directly as they are reported by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. The organization states that disability discrimination occurs when an employer or entity, having 15 employees or more, treats a qualified person with a disability unfavorably simply because of said disability. In addition, it states that the law also applies to employers who treat anyone with a history of disabilities unfavorably, simply because of their past experience. This could include someone who has battled with cancer and may be in remission or anyone who has struggled with mental illness and receives regular treatment.
It is illegal to discriminate against anyone who is disabled in any aspect of their job, including:
- Job assignments
Disability Discrimination & Harassment
If it unlawful to harass any employee who has a disability, has had one in the past, or is even believed to have a short term disability. A harasser can be a supervisor, co-worker, client, vendor, or anyone who is not employed by the same company but is connected by a third party.
Disability Discrimination & Reasonable Accommodation
Reasonable accommodation is defined as a change in the workplace environment that allows the disabled employee to perform their duties efficiently. These changes can include a wheelchair ramp, elevator access, or a reader or interpreter for the blind or hearing impaired.
