Searching for a caring, compassionate disability discrimination lawyer?
If you believe that you’ve been discriminated against due to your disability, you need to consult with a disability discrimination lawyer. Nobody should be treated unfairly because of their disability. This could include an employer failing to hire an employee because of their disability, demoting or terminating an employee because of their disability, or otherwise taking a negative action against the employee because of their disability. Both Michigan and federal laws, such as the Persons with Disabilities Civil Rights Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act, protect employees from disability discrimination in the workplace.
An individual with a disability does need to be able to perform the essential functions of their job. However, employers must provide employees with reasonable accommodations – if needed – so that the employee can perform their essential job functions. Of course, many individuals have disabilities that do not prevent them from doing their jobs and employers are prohibited from discriminating against them based on disability, a history of disability, or the perception of a disability.
If you believe that you have been mistreated by your employer due to your disability, a perceived disability, a history of disability or association with a disabled person, the law allows you to seek relief.
