Disability Discrimination

WHAT IS IT?

The St. Louis employment lawyers at The Powell Law Firm represent individuals who believe that they have been discriminated against because of their disability.

Examples of disability discrimination include:
  • Termination or differential treatment of a worker because of his / her actual or perceived disability
  • An employer failing to provide a "reasonable accommodation" to a worker with a disability
  • An employer failing to allow a leave of absence or failing to provide leniency on violations of an attendance policy for a disabled worker if the worker needs time off as a "reasonable accommodation" of their disability, such as to obtain medical treatment
  • Termination (or discipline) of a worker because of their association with a person who has a disability

An employer may not retaliate against an individual for opposing disability discrimination or for filing a charge of disability discrimination (with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission or equivalent state agency), testifying, or participating in any way in an investigation, proceeding, or litigation under federal or state disability discrimination laws.
If you are a disabled person or are perceived as a disabled person and have been wrongfully discriminated against, it is important that you contact The Powell Law Firm as soon as possible. A dedicated and experienced discrimination attorney can ensure that you receive the compensation that you deserve.
