Disability Discrimination

Fierce Legal Advocacy in Rochester, New York

As an individual living with a disability, you should be aware of the federal and state laws that protect you from workplace discrimination. The Law Office of Kimberly A. Glennon has represented many victims of employment discrimination due to physical or mental impairment. In fact, Attorney Glennon practices exclusively in this area of law, unlike other law firms in the Rochester area.

The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) is a federal law prohibiting employers from discharging or failing to employ qualified individuals on the basis of disability. If you are able to perform your job duties, then the ADA upholds your right to equal employment opportunity. In addition, the New York State Human Rights Law also protects individuals with disabilities from workplace discrimination.

What is disability?

A disability is defined by federal law as a mental or physical impairment that significantly inhibits a major life activity. Under New York state law, the definition of a disability is even more inclusive. Not only is disability employment discrimination illegal, but employers are also required by law to make "reasonable accommodations" for employees with disabilities unless doing so would cause "undue hardship." Examples of reasonable accommodation include:

  • Providing accessible or modified equipment
  • Job reassignment
  • Work schedule restructuring
  • Modifying work-related tests and job training material
  • Providing interpreters and / or readers
