Disability Discrimination & Accomodations You Have Rights. LawrenceQueen Knows They Matter.

Richmond Disability Discrimination Attorneys

Disability Accommodations & Disability Discrimination

It has been nearly 30 years since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits employers from discriminating against employees or applicants based off mental and/or physical disabilities. The ADA also set forth requirements for employers to make reasonable accommodations for disabled employees, and it made it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees or applicants with disabled loved ones.

If you are disabled, were disabled, or have a loved one with a disability, you are protected by the ADA. LawrenceQueen is here to help if you have been treated unfairly at the workplace. Our Richmond disability discrimination attorneys understand exactly how ADA violations occur and can advise you of your rights. We are committed to improving conditions for disabled workers across Virginia.

Let our Richmond attorneys help us protect your rights as a disabled worker. To discuss your case and needs, give us a call at (804) 409-8689.

Types of Disabilities Covered by the ADA

The ADA covers different types of employees or job applicants, including those that:

  • Have a permanent physical/mental disability that impacts one or more primary aspects of their lives, such as walking, seeing, hearing, or speaking.
  • Have a history of a disability, such as cancer that is in remission, or a disability that was successfully treated.
  • Have a temporary disability that impacts major life functions.
  • Have a perceived physical/mental disability, even if the person is actually not disabled.
  • Have a family member with a temporary or permanent disability.

Understanding Disability Accommodations

Qualified applicants and workers who have physical or mental disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations provided by their employers, as long as making such accommodations does not present a hardship for the employer.

Reasonable accommodations may include changes in the work environment that:

  • Make it possible for a disabled person to apply for a job.
  • Help a disabled worker perform his or her job duties.
  • Help a disabled employee enjoy the benefits of employment.
