Examples of Disability Discrimination
If you or a loved one has experienced any of the following situations, you may have grounds for a disability discrimination claim.
- You were harassed or treated unfavorably due to your physical or mental disability.
- You were harassed or otherwise mistreated due to your relationship to someone who has a disability.
- You were singled out because of past disabilities.
- An employer has failed to provide reasonable accommodations to you and your disability.
It is important to note that disability discrimination protections extend to any aspect of the employment process. This includes:
- Job assignments
- Other benefits
So, for example, if you were assigned to a lesser position due to your disability, or you did not receive the same benefits, you may have grounds for a disability discrimination lawsuit.
Why Do You Need a Disability Discrimination Attorney?
It is highly recommended to consult a legal professional specializing in employment law if you are considering filing a disability discrimination claim. All discrimination claims are processed by filing a charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and they require a considerable amount of evidence and information. Failure to provide this in a comprehensive, organized manner may result in your case being prematurely dismissed. A California disability discrimination attorney with experience and knowledge in EEOC claims can help you file these charges on your behalf, assisting with everything from paperwork to evidence gathering.
Additionally, a disability discrimination lawyer understands any potential laws or provisions that must be taken into consideration regarding your case. For example, there is a strict statute of limitations on all EEOC charges – a time limit deadline for all charges before they are considered invalid. You have 180 days from the date of the incident to file a disability discrimination claim – but this can also be impacted by state laws as well. A lawyer is aware of such deadlines to ensure you file a charge promptly and without consequence.
Ultimately, an attorney is there to give you peace of mind – essentially handling the complex legal process on your behalf so you can focus on other important aspects of your life.
