Disability Discrimination & Reasonable Accommodation.

 

If you have been injured, either on or off the job, you may have a disability or medical condition and require accommodation at work. Your employer is obligated under the law to engage in a good faith interactive process with you to enable you to perform your job with or without reasonable accommodation. If a determination is made that the employee cannot perform his or her position with or without reasonable accommodation, the employee may be reassigned to a different position.

 

Sometimes employers fail to engage in a good faith interactive process or provide a reasonable accommodation and may terminate an employee with a disability. Many times employers leave disabled employees on extended and involuntary leaves of absence without exploring potential accommodations. This is illegal and you should seek legal advice if you believe you are being discriminated against on the basis of your disability or medical condition.
