Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination persists as one of the most frequent forms of workplace discrimination as many employers wrongly assume that disabled employees will not be able to perform their jobs as well as, or even better than, non-disabled employees. Many workers qualify as disabled under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) and the ADA Amendments Act of 2008 (“ADAAA”), but are unaware of their rights and protections. If you have an illness, disease, or a physical or mental condition, you may qualify as a protected individual and be entitled to reasonable accommodations in the workplace to better enable you to perform your job and protection from unlawful discrimination because of your disability. It is also unlawful for covered employees to be discriminated against because they are regarded as, or perceived as, having a disability.

The attorneys at Henrichsen Law Group understand the challenges facing disabled individuals, whether in the workplace or in other public settings or housing opportunities. We seek to protect your rights and preserve your value as valued citizens of this great country.
Individuals with conditions such as diabetes, multiple sclerosis, HIV/AIDS, cancer, epilepsy, dyslexia, heart conditions, mental illness, or other mental or physical conditions may qualify as disabled under the ADAAA. Individuals who qualify as disabled under the ADAAA may not be discriminated against in hiring, promotion, discipline, discharge, provision of wages and benefits, transfers, work assignments, performance evaluations, job training, or any other term or condition of employment.

The law regarding disability discrimination can be complex, and you should consult with an experienced attorney to determine your legal rights.
