What Is The EEOC?

The EEOC is the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, which is a federal agency that enforces civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in the workplace.

The law makes it clear that employers must provide reasonable accommodation to allow disabled employees to perform their jobs. Sadly, many employers who have the means to accommodate employees still fail to do so.

In fact, between the years of 2012-2014, 34 percent of the disability claims filed with the EEOC were due to a lack of reasonable accommodation. It is even worse in New York, where 42 percent of the complaints were filed based on this issue.

If you were discriminated against at work, you may be able to file a claim with the EEOC. Schedule a confidential consultation with dedicated Rochester employment lawyer Michelle Cimino to learn more about your rights.
