Disability Discrimination

Along with age, gender, religion, and race, the federal government and most states have laws prohibiting discrimination based on an employee's disability or perceived disability. This does not mean that every person must be hired for any job for which they apply. But it does mean that if an employee or potential employee is capable of performing a task, they should not be treated differently from any other person also capable of performing that task. Read through the articles below to find out more about disability protections, as well as the process for raising a complaint, so that you, your employer, and your employees can be educated about this important area of law.
