ADA Disability Discrimination and ADA Disability Harassment
Labor & Employment Law
ADA – Disability Discrimination in Florida
The Sass Law Firm represents employees in disability discrimination cases in both federal and state courts. Federal and state laws protect employees against disability discrimination, and require employers to make reasonable accommodation for employees with disabilities. Even if you are not disabled, if you have a record or past history of a disability, or if your employer mistakenly believes you are disabled, you may still be protected from disability discrimination. If you need assistance negotiating a reasonable accommodation with your employer, or if you have been denied reasonable accommodation, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights. Similarly, if you have been treated differently than others based upon a disability, record of a disability, or perceived disability, including being subjected to a hostile work environment, and need assistance to remedy the disability discrimination, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Disability discrimination is against the law.
ADA – Disability Harassment and Hostile Work Environment
The federal and state laws against treating employees differently with regard to the terms, conditions and privileges of employment based upon their disability also make it illegal to subject employees to harassment because of their disability. For example, if you are frequently subjected to derogatory comments regarding your disability, or a perceived disability, by co-workers or supervisors, it could be considered unlawful disability harassment or creating a hostile work environment. If you feel you are being harassed because of your disability, and need assistance with seeking internal remedies and/or legal remedies if the disability harassment does not stop, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights. Disability harassment is against the law.
Additionally, if you are retaliated against for complaining about disability harassment or ADA discrimination, please call the Sass Law Firm to schedule a consultation to learn more about your rights and potential remedies. Retaliation is against the law.
