DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION

LAWYER IN NYC

Have you been discriminated against in the workplace due to a disability?

Federal disability rights protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) make disability-based discrimination at work illegal, as do a number of other state and local discrimination laws. At Moshes Law, P.C., we represent individuals who have faced unfair treatment and/or harassment at their place of employment due to disability or have had employers make important employment decisions based on their disability rather than their skills, qualifications, and job performance.
Work with an experienced disability discrimination lawyer, NYC-based, and get the support you need to successfully state your claim and protect your right to fair treatment at work.

DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE: EXAMPLES AND QUALIFICATIONS

The ADA defines a disability as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. The term also applies to any
employee who is regarded by his or her employer as disabled, even if the employee does not actually fit the definition.

This broad definition means that many people who do not consider themselves disabled may still find protection under the ADA. The law applies to both full-time and part-time employees.

Some of the most common types of disability discrimination include:

Refusing

Refusing to interview a
disabled job applicant

hiring

Not hiring a disabled job applicant after confirming that the
applicant’s disability would not create serious workplace
diffculties

Harassing

Harassing disabled employees in the workplace by making jokes or derogatory comments

promoting

Not promoting or advancing a disabled employee out of fear that their disability will impair job performance at higher levels

Underpaying

Underpaying or not giving
bonuses to disabled employees

providing

Not providing a reasonable accommodation to a disabled employee, such as modifications of trainings or materials, breaks to take medication or appropriate access to workplace facilities

from-work.

CAN I SUE MY EMPLOYER FOR NOT ACCOMMODATING MY DISABILITY?

Under the ADA and state and local discrimination laws, employers, supervisors, co-workers, business partners, and even clients and customers can all be sued for instances of workplace discrimination related to disability, including neglectful practices like non-accommodations. Per the ADA, employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations or adjustments to the workplace that allows a disabled employee to perform his or her job. Whether an accommodation is reasonable, however, does depend on the degree to which an accommodation would disrupt the employer’s operation or result in unreasonable cost.
Please note that in New York and under the ADA, an employee must file a charge of discrimination with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (“EEOC”) within 300 days of the most recent discriminatory act. Once a Notice-of-Right-to-Sue is received from the EEOC, an employee must file his or her lawsuit within 90 days.

    Hired Yuri to help me through coop purchase process. Yuriy and his staff answered all my questions promptly, I've had attorneys in the past that once paid would take their time and de prioritize your mails, etc..Not the case here. My initial purchase wound up folding week before scheduled closing date due to seller negligence. Almost a year later, I received same level of effort from Yuriy second time around, closed, and am very happy with professionalism and expertise provided.
