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 ADA'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 physical or mental
health condition is considered a disability is made on a case-by-case basis. The ADA requires employers to provide disabled
employees with a reasonable accommodation 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 simply 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. In addition, you could be a victim of unlawful disability discrimination if your employer regards
you as disabled even though you are not disabled.
Do you have a disability, or does your employer regard you as having a disability that you do
If so, do you believe your disability or perceived disability was a
- Your termination?
- A pay difference between you and a non-disabled employee?
employer's refusal to promote you?
- A demotion or reduction in job duties?
- A prospective employer's denial
- Workplace harassment at the hands of your boss, supervisor or co-worker?
addition, has your employer:
- Refused your request for a disability related accommodation?
to enter into an interactive process with you regarding your request for an accommodation?
- Retaliated against you after you requested a reasonable accommodation or complained about disability discrimination or workplace harassment?
