Beckley Disability Discrimination Lawyer

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, it is unlawful for an employer to treat any employees differently than the rest because of an illness or disability. This extends to the application and hiring process, pay, opportunities, promotions, benefits, disciplinary actions, termination and other employment-related factors. It also requires that the employer provides proper accommodations and equipment that will allow the employee to work comfortably and to his or her full potential.

Bluefield ADA Attorney — Achieving Equitable Work Accommodations For Disabled Individuals

ADA covers any individuals that meet the following requirements:

  • A physical or mental ailment that limits or impairs one or more aspects of the person’s life
  • Record and documentation of this disability
