The Americans with Disabilities Act Protects Disabled Workers
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was enacted to prevent employers from discriminating against an employee or job applicant with a disability. But what does it mean to discriminate due to an employee’s physical, medical or mental health impairment?
Disability discrimination takes many forms:
- rejected for a position,
- barred from a promotion,
- fired or terminated,
- harassed or singled out by colleagues or even supervisors.
All of these are unlawful in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
If you’ve experienced discrimination because of your disability in Pennsylvania or New Jersey, you don’t have to remain silent or accept your employer’s actions.
