Understanding Your Rights Against Disability Discrimination

Donati Law, PLLC fights hard for its clients to guarantee workplace rights for individuals living with disabilities. Many laws, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the ADA Amendment Act, the Rehabilitation Act, and other state laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of disability for qualified individuals by private and public employers. These laws also require employers to engage in an interactive process with employees to make reasonable accommodations that allow an employee to perform the essential functions necessary for the job.

The anti-discrimination provisions of these laws:

  • Protect employees from adverse actions by their employers
  • Prohibit the harassment of employees on the basis of their disabilities

What Is a Disability?

The term "disability" includes both physical and mental impairments that substantially limit activities as well as situations in which an employer regards an employee as having such an impairment.
