If you have challenges in dealing with health and family issues, or are seeking basic accommodations for a disability, for yourself or your family members, the last thing you expect is for your employer to use an already difficult circumstance against you. The last thing the law allows is for an employer to use sickness, injury, or disability to take steps to negatively affect your employment or try to wrongfully terminate you, based on a health or disability issue.
Talk to our legal team about rights if you believe your employer is targeting or discriminating against you based on a health, sickness, or disability. We are here for you, and if we believe you have a case we will aggressively pursue employers who have engaged in treating you differently because of a health, sickness or disability, or has wrongfully terminated you for these reasons.
Your Legally Protected Rights
Federal law (and some state law) protects many workers from discrimination based on a disability or even an illness or injury – or the adoption of a child. Even in twenty first century America, we sadly see employers who unlawfully fire employees because they have disabilities, injuries and health conditions the employer simply does not want to have to deal with. If you believe you have legal rights that have been violated, please speak with our legal team. We are here for you, and we will aggressively pursue employers who blatantly violate our client’s rights.
Sickness, Injury, and Disability
You are not alone. Federal law may protect you from your employer’s illegal acts.
The Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) and the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) are very serious laws that provide important rights. The ADA protects employees by requiring covered employers to reasonably accommodate employees’ disabilities and protects employees with up to 12 weeks of leave per year. ADA coverage requires a “disability”, while the FMLA is triggered by a “serious health condition”.
These laws can be confusing, and not all employers are covered, but if you would like to learn more about our ADA and FMLA rights, one of our lawyers can help. We will examine your situation and give you straight answers. If your employer or former employer has unlawfully violated your ADA or FMLA rights, we will fight for you.
