Disability discrimination occurs when an employer treats a qualified individual unfavorably because of their disability, which includes physical, mental, or emotional disabilities. This could include not providing a reasonable accommodation or modification for the job, or giving different terms, conditions, or privileges in employment.

Examples of disability discrimination include:

  • Refusing to hire someone because of their known disability.
  • Failing to provide reasonable accommodations for an employee's disability, such as modifying work hours or providing specialized equipment.
  • Demoting or firing an individual due to their disability or the need for accommodation.
  • Making derogatory comments or jokes about an individual's disability.
  • Excluding an employee from training or promotional opportunities because of their disability.

Every case is unique. If you suspect you've been a victim of disability discrimination, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation to delve into the specifics of your situation.

In most states, like New York, you have 300 days from the date of the alleged discriminatory act to file a charge with the EEOC against a private employer. It's essential to consult with our team promptly to ensure that all necessary actions are taken within the required timeframes because there are shorter timeframes for federal government employees, those suing the government, and for those located in certain states that don't have a designated fair employment practices agency.

Compensation can vary based on the details of your case but may include back pay, front pay, compensatory damages, emotional distress damages, and other remedies.

While retaliation against employees for asserting their rights under the ADA and the NYSHR is illegal, it can occur. If you experience retaliation after initiating a claim, this becomes an additional aspect of your case that we will tenaciously address to stop and upon which we will seek compensation for you.
