Disability Discrimination

Shelton Law Practice, LLC represents employees who have been discriminated against under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).  The ADA protects employees against discrimination on the basis of their status as a disabled person.  While all physical or mental ailments may not qualify as a disability under the ADA, the term disability is broadly defined under the Act.  Therefore, whether you actually have a disability, have a record of a disability, or your employer mistakenly perceives you as being a disabled person, you may be entitled to the protections available to workers under the ADA.

Disability discrimination can take various forms, including, but not limited to the following:

 

  • Impermissible Medical Inquiries and Examinations
  • Disparate Treatment
  • Failure to Accommodate
  • Retaliation for Requesting an Accommodation

We advocate for employees who have been subjected to disability discrimination and we hold employers responsible when they fall short under the ADA.  If you believe your rights have been violated as a result of unlawful disability discrimination, we can help.
