The ADA prohibits private employers and governmental entities from discriminating against qualified individuals with real or perceived disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training, and other privileges of employment. The ADA makes it illegal for employers to limit or classify employees in ways that adversely affect their employment status based on an actual or perceived disability.
The ADA also requires employers to engage in discussions with qualified individuals and provide them with reasonable accommodations where possible. If an employee with a disability can perform vital job functions with reasonable accommodations, they are considered equal to a “fit” employee and should be given the same fair treatment as any other employee.
We are devoted to combating discriminatory practices and protecting your rights to reasonable work accommodations.
