Orlando Employment and Labor Law Attorneys Serving Victims of Disability Discrimination
Discrimination against employees who are disabled or have been injured occurs regardless if that disability or injury affects the employee’s ability to fulfill their job duties. Employers often discriminate by terminating, demoting, denying promotions, refusing to reasonably accommodate, or retaliating against an employee that requested a reasonable accommodation.
By law, an employer is required to discuss and reasonably accommodate an employee’s disability, whether it be physical, mental, or due to a chronic condition so long as such disability is not an undue hardship on the employer. If you believe your employer has illegally discriminated against you due to your disability, or refused to reasonably accommodate your disability in order for you to continue fulfilling your job duties, contact Wilson McCoy, P.A., an Orlando employment legal team you can trust to get results.
Note: Most discrimination claims are governed by a statute of limitations. If your claims are not first preserved through the filing of an administrative charge of discrimination, you may lose your right to sue your employer.
