It is important to understand that before you can receive protection from disability discrimination by an employer, your condition must fall within one of the recognized disabilities under state or federal law. A recognized disability is a permanent medical condition that limits a major life function (i.e. walking, seeing, hearing, etc.). Our Firm can work with your treating medical providers and medical professionals to fully understand your diagnosis and disability.
If you currently suffer from a recognized disability, you first must request a reasonable accommodation from your employer before you can file a disability discrimination claim. The law, then obligates your employer to provide you with a reasonable accommodation if it would not create an undue hardship on his or her business. We will help establish whether your employer's actions fall within the legal reasonable accommodation requirements.
If you currently suffer from a recognized disability and your employer fails to afford you with a reasonable accommodation, you may file a disability discrimination claim. The goal of these claims is to get you damages for the injuries you suffered. If you were fired because of a disability, you may use these claims to seek reinstatement. We will represent you at all stages of your discrimination claim. Call us, the call is free, the initial consultation is free, call us at 210-222-2288 or toll free at 800-862-1260.
