Disability Discrimination Attorney in Chicago
Failure to Accommodate & Disability Discrimination
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees on the basis of disability. Employers are forbidden from making decisions regarding hiring, promotion, demotion, termination, compensation, job training or other terms and conditions of employment based on an employee's disability, history of disability or perceived disability. In addition, the ADA requires employers to accommodate the known physical and mental disabilities of employees, unless the accommodation would impose an "undue hardship" on the employer. Disability discrimination is also prohibited under state land local laws.
Eligibility requirements for disability claims differ under federal and state law. An experienced attorney at the Law Offices of Fern Trevino can explain how the law applies to your situation and can answer your other questions regarding discrimination and employment law. The firm recognizes that each client is different and that each case will present its own set of issues to be addressed. Therefore, we emphasize personalized attention and communication with each client.
