Disability discrimination is a form of employment discrimination that occurs when an employer treats an employee or job applicant differently because of their disability. Disability discrimination is a violation of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), which prohibits employers from discriminating against employees or applicants with disabilities in all aspects of employment, including hiring, firing, promotions, and demotions.
If you believe that you have been the victim of disability discrimination in the workplace, it is important to take action as soon as possible. The first step is to file a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
However, you only have 300 days from the date of the discrimination to do so. After that, you may lose your right to file a lawsuit.
That’s why it’s important to contact an experienced employment law attorney as soon as you believe you have been discriminated against. They can help you navigate the complaint process and ensure that you meet all the deadlines.
