Disability Rights

Disability Discrimination

State and Federal laws prohibit discrimination against employees based on a disability.  Once an employee with a disability requests a reasonable accommodation at work to help them perform their job, the employer has an obligation to engage in an interactive process with that employee to determine whether the employee can still perform the essential functions of the job with or without a reasonable accommodation.  

Employers cannot discriminate against disabled employees because they require accommodations to perform their jobs.  Likewise, employers cannot terminate employees or lower their pay because of actual or perceived disability.
