It Is Illegal To Discriminate Against An Employee Based On Disability

Disabled people are a protected class under a federal law known as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). It is illegal for employers to discharge, fail to promote, fail to hire or otherwise verbally or physically abuse an individual because of a physical or mental handicap.

If you have been discriminated against at work due to your disability, your rights have been violated. Lawrence N. Lavigne, Esq., L.L.C., will fight to protect you. We will put the law on your side.

From our office in Union County, attorney Lawrence N. Lavigne has made a positive difference in the lives of many workers during his more than 30 years of experience. He will aggressively advocate for you if your disability or injury has not been accommodated by your employer or if you have become the target of cruel, derogatory comments about your condition while you are trying to do your job.

Signs You Have Been Discriminated Against

Signs of disability and injury discrimination in the workplace include:

  • Failure to accommodate the disability or injury of an employee with special needs
  • Failure to grant leave under requirements stated in the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Failure to hire a capable employee because of his or her injury or disability
  • Discharge of or retaliation against a disabled individual for requesting accommodations

Lawrence N. Lavigne will listen carefully to your goals, evaluate your claim, give you recommendations about how to proceed and prepare your case as if it is coming to trial. He can also advise you on how to report discrimination. If you decide to file a lawsuit, he can negotiate with your employer or litigate in court if that is your best option.
