Michigan Disability Discrimination Lawyer

The ADA and certain state laws prohibit discrimination against and harassment of individuals with disabilities who can perform the necessary functions of their job with reasonable accommodations.

The ADA is a wide-ranging civil rights law that prohibits, under certain circumstances, discrimination based on disability. Disability is defined as “a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.” The determination of whether any particular condition is considered a disability is made on a case-by-case basis.

If you have been discriminated due to your disability, here are some important things you should be aware of:

  • Employers must make reasonable attempts to accommodate your disability.
  • Special equipment may have to be provided.
  • Special treatment may have to be provided such as relief from certain work rules, job hours, time off or transfers to another job.
  • The employer may not discriminate or retaliate against you for requesting accommodations.

Your job may have been adversely, unlawfully or unfairly affected in the following manner:

  • Creating a hostile work environment
  • Termination
  • Not getting a promotion you deserve
  • Cutting your hours or benefits
  • Changing your job duties
  • Changing your hours
  • Demotions
  • Harassment

The ADA states that covered entity shall not discriminate against a qualified individual with a disability. This applies to job application procedures, hiring, advancement, discharge of employees, workers’ compensation, job training, and other terms, conditions, and privileges of employment. Discrimination, among other things, may include limiting or classifying a job applicant or employee in an adverse way, denying employment opportunities to people who truly qualify, or not making reasonable accommodations to the known physical or mental limitations of disabled employees, not advancing employees with disabilities in the business, and/or not providing needed accommodations in training.
