The law protects individuals with physical or mental disabilities from being discriminated in the workplace. Disability discrimination can take many forms. For example: harassment, failure to hire, unfair discipline, failure to promote or provide a raise, termination, or layoff. Individuals with perceived disabilities are also protected under the law.
In addition, the law requires employers to provide “reasonable accommodation” to employees with disabilities or illnesses. Examples of reasonable accommodation include:
- providing a leave of absence,
- modifying job duties or responsibilities,
- providing specialized equipment or furniture, or
- adjusting the work schedule.
All too often, employers either refuse to provide any accommodation or do so in a half-hearted manner, before they terminate employees in these situations.
