Call 215-322-6990 to speak with an ADA lawyer today!


The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) provided much-needed legal protection to individuals with physical or mental disabilities.  The ADA Amendments of 2008 strengthened the Act's protections.  An employer cannot refuse to hire someone or treat an employee differently because of a disability.  Of course, the determination of whether any particular medical or health condition is considered a disability is made on a case-by-case basis.  The ADA requires employers to provide disabled employees with reasonable accommodations unless the employer can show that the requested accommodation would result in an undue hardship to the employer.  In addition, the ADA protects employees from retaliation.  An employee cannot be fired, discharged, laid off, demoted or subjected to an adverse employment action because that employee exercised rights under the ADA, such as the right to report unlawful workplace harassment or disability discrimination or the right to request a reasonable accommodation.

Do you believe your disability was a factor in:
  • Your termination?
  • A pay difference between you and a non-disabled employee?
  • Your employer's refusal to promote you?
  • A demotion or reduction in job duties?
  • A prospective employer's denial of employment?
  • Workplace harassment at the hands of your boss, supervisor or co-worker?
In addition, has your employer:
  • Refused your request for a reasonable accommodation?
  • Taken any of the actions described above or otherwise, retaliated against you after you requested a reasonable accommodation?
If so, call an employment lawyer today!
