Advocating For Disabled Employees
You Are Entitled To Reasonable Accommodations
Employers are required to provide reasonable accommodations to help employees with disabilities perform their job duties, which includes meeting with the employee to determine what type of accommodations are necessary.
Reasonable accommodations in the workplace can include:
- Providing sign language interpreters for deaf employees or readers for blind employees
- Making physical changes to the workspace such as installing a ramp
- Providing a quieter workspace for reducing distractions
- Providing training materials in an accessible format
- Providing time off so employees can seek treatment
Our lawyers have experience helping employees with disabilities understand their rights in the workplace, which includes interacting with employees, taking leaves and seeking leave as an accommodation.
You may be able to file a claim if your employer has failed to provide accommodations or did not allow you to take leave because of your disability. It is important to recognize your disability rights to protect your job now and in the future.
