What Is Disability Discrimination?

Disability discrimination is not easy to prove. You need a skilled lawyer on your side, gathering evidence and fighting for you. Michelle Cimino of The Cimino Law Firm has dedicated her career to employment law. She has spent more than 20 years fighting discrimination cases. She understands both state and federal laws and knows how to fight for your rights.

Disability discrimination is being treated differently or in a negative way due solely to your disability, and disability is defined in specific ways under federal and state law. If you or a loved one feels that you’re the victim of disability discrimination, please contact our firm to arrange a confidential consultation and we’ll discuss your legal rights.

If you have been mistreated in the workplace due to a disability, you have suffered from disability discrimination. The federal American with Disabilities Act and the New York Human Rights Law prohibits discrimination of this kind. Under the laws, your employer cannot discriminate against you based on a real or perceived disability and also must make reasonable accommodations to allow you to perform your job functions.

Even with these strict guidelines, countless employers try to get around the law and discriminate against employees. Fortunately, you can fight back with the help of The Cimino Law Firm. Call us today to schedule a confidential consultation.
