Effective Employment Law Assistance From a Lawyer Serving Gaithersburg and the Surrounding Areas
If you feel as though your employer is discriminating against you, it is important to document everything that occurs. Having a good paper trail will help greatly in building a strong case for your claims. Due to the rough economy, employers are finding any reason they can to cut back on their employees.
Disability discrimination can consist of many things, including not being promoted, being phased out or not being hired for a position. Some employers discriminate because they do not want to provide the proper accommodations, such as wheelchair access and ramps. We have litigated many failure-to-accommodate claims and know how to best support your case.
Fitting the Essential Elements of the Position and Fighting Disability Discrimination Claims
Being disabled does not mean that you cannot perform the essential functions of your job. You may have been working longer and harder than most others at your company, making you even more qualified for the position. As long as we can prove that you can properly perform the essential functions of your occupation, we will most likely have a strong case against your employer for disability discrimination.
