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.

disabled or pregnant individual who has been subjected to discrimination
in the workplace, it is vital that you seek professional legal assistance from a Washington
DC federal employment law attorney at the Solomon Law Firm, PLLC immediately.

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.
