Handle Disability Discrimination And Accommodation Claims Appropriately
Federal, state and city laws prohibit discrimination against those with disabilities or perceived as having a disability. These laws change often and could impact your business.
Disability laws protect employees who may need a reasonable accommodation to adequately fulfill their duties as outlined in the job description. When employees request that your business provide a disability accommodation, you could be exposed to liability if you do not engage in interactive communications with those employees.
Our attorneys help employers deal with disability discrimination and failure-to-accommodate claims. In addition, we provide training for supervisors and human resource personnel on how to engage in an interactive discussion and determine whether the employer can reasonably accommodate a job applicant or current employee with a disability.
