Know When You’re Protected From Disability Discrimination
Federal, New York state and New York City laws protect employees from disability discrimination in the workplace. Disability discrimination differs greatly from other types of discrimination, and it can be difficult to know where you stand under the Americans with Disabilities Act and similar laws, to know the ways in which you are protected in this area, and to know how to move forward once discrimination has occurred.
