Disabled workers may often face discrimination in the workplace, even when their disability does not prevent their ability to perform the duties of a job. Disability discrimination is, however, governed by certain federal laws which have been enacted to make it illegal.

What can be considered discrimination?

Disability discrimination comes in many forms, including:

  • Failure to hire
  • Failure to promote
  • Wrongful termination
  • Failure to provide reasonable accommodations
  • Failure to provide benefits
  • Wrongful termination

At its essence, it means treating a person with a disability or injury differently from any other employee in the matters of hiring, firing, recruitment, training, and assignment of jobs, pay, benefits, layoff, promotions, leave, and any other job-related activity. Disability discrimination of this type is illegal according to the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendment of 2008 (ADA or ADAA) and The Rehabilitation Act of 1973. According to the ADA, a disabled person is one who has a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more life activities, a person who has a record of such a disability, or one who is regarded as an employee with a disability.
