Americans with Disabilities Act Litigation

Discrimination Based on an Actual or Perceived Disability

Our employment litigation lawyers have experience representing employees who have been treated unfairly because of an actual or perceived disability.  The protections afforded by the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) are complex and involve nuanced requirements and exceptions. Our discrimination lawyers can assist you in managing these requirements/exceptions.

Examples of disability discrimination may include:

  • Discriminating on the basis of physical or mental disability in various aspects of employment, including: recruitment, firing, hiring, training, job assignments, promotions, pay, benefits, lay off, leave and all other employment-related activities.
  • Harassing an employee on the basis of his or her disability.
  • Asking job applicants questions about their past or current medical conditions, or requiring job applicants to take medical exams.
  • Creating or maintaining a workplace that includes substantial physical barriers to the movement of people with physical disabilities.
  • Refusing to provide a reasonable accommodation to employees with physical or mental disability that would allow them to work.

If any of these things have happened to you on the job, you may have suffered disability discrimination. If you have a disability and are qualified to do a job, there are federal and state laws protecting you from job discrimination, harassment, and retaliation on the basis of your disability. Maginnis Law offers free consultations to employees who believe they have been discriminated against because of an actual or perceived disability. If you decide to hire our firm, we offer a variety of fee arrangement to fit your circumstances, including contingency fees, flat fees, hourly rates, and hybrid arrangements.
