People With Disabilities Are Legally Protected From Discrimination
Unfortunately, people with disabilities can face severe discrimination in the workplace. Federal and state laws protect the rights of people who have both visible and unseen disabilities. Karpf, Karpf & Cerutti, P.C., has helped clients throughout New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania who were unsure where else to turn.
Understanding Your Rights
If you were refused accommodations or discriminated against because of a disability, talking to an attorney is imperative. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) holds employers to a high standard. This includes providing reasonable adjustments to your workspace and proper compensation. It also protects you from being harassed by other coworkers. As an employee, they have to give you the same opportunities as everyone else they hire.
It is important to know that the company you work for cannot ask job applicants about the existence or severity of their disability. However, they can ask about their ability to perform certain work functions. Our experienced employment law attorneys will help you get the deserved compensation, the proper accommodations or your job back. You deserve trusted legal help. With over 100 years of experience, you can rest assured that we can build the strongest possible case for you.
