Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Claims
Since its passage in 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has required employers to extend reasonable accommodations to protected disabled employees. ADA accommodations may include:
- Part-time or modified work schedules
- Special furniture or equipment
- Reassigning disabled workers to vacant positions
The ADA and related state laws also prevent employers from engaging in discriminatory and retaliatory conduct toward employees with qualified disabilities. Discrimination or retaliation can take the form of a demotion, reduced pay, or wrongful discharge. Our attorneys have extensive experience in dealing with ADA related claims and can help ensure that you are protected when such issues arise.
