Disability Discrimination

Fighting Disability Discrimination in the Workplace

The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits employment discrimination against people with disabilities who are otherwise qualified to do their jobs. In such cases, it also requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation that can enable a person with a disability to perform his or her assigned job functions, unless that accommodation places an undue burden on the employer. ADA does not apply to employers with fewer than 15 employees.

Examples of Disability Discrimination in TX

Nonetheless, disability discrimination is common in Texas workplaces. You have rights if you have suffered disability discrimination in: 

  • Hiring
  • Promotion
  • Job training
  • Termination 
  • Employer has refused to provide reasonable accommodation

Claiming Compensation for Workplace Disability Discrimination 

You may be able to claim compensation for:

  • Lost income
  • Lost benefits
  • Emotional suffering
  • Other economic and noneconomic losses

Vigorous Representation on Behalf of Disability Discrimination Victims

“At my law firm, we believe that people with disabilities are entitled to be treated in a dignified way and be provided the opportunity to contribute to society through productive activity. I will work hard to obtain results for you.”

Attorney Terrence B. Robinson

It is not enough to simply assert that you have a disability. 

To win a disability discrimination lawsuit, you must show that:

  • You have an impairment that significantly limits a life activity.
  • There is a record of such an impairment (evidenced for example, by medical records).
  • With reasonable accommodation on the part of your employer, you can perform the essential functions of your job.

At the TB Robinson Law Group, PLLC, in Houston, we have extensive experience representing victims of employment discrimination, including disability discrimination. We understand the many complex aspects of ADA and other employment laws, and will work diligently to obtain results for you.

What is ‘Reasonable Accommodation’?

Just what constitutes reasonable accommodation requires careful analysis and investigation. It could be something as simple as providing a large screen computer monitor or an adjustable height work surface. For a person with a chronic medical condition, it could also mean the provision of unpaid leave time so the worker can get periodic medical care.

If your employer refuses to provide reasonable accommodation or unpaid leave time, you may be able to claim compensation. The TB Robinson Law Group, PLLC, can represent you.
