The Armstrong Law Firm Fights Back Against Disability Discrimination
Your disability is not cause for discrimination, harassment, and hostility in the workplace. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) prohibits these types of behaviors. Our Oakland disability discrimination attorney will help you determine your legal options if you think you are the victim of disability discrimination.
The Armstrong Law Firm will investigate instances of:
- Comments negatively impacting your employment
- Hostile work environment
- Illegal questions during job interviews
- Mocking, bullying, and humiliation
- Not making reasonable accommodations
- Offensive statements about your disability
- Other instances of disability discrimination
You do not have to put up with constant beratement from supervisors, co-workers, and customers. Hire a legal team with the experience and knowledge you deserve to assert your rights. The Armstrong Law Firm is ready to help.
You Have a Right to Reasonable Accommodations
You have a right to reasonable accommodation requests if you have a documented disability. Reasonable accommodations are those that allow you to perform and enjoy your work as any other employee does.
Reasonable accommodation requests include:
- Wheelchair access
- Braille format documents
- Permission for related doctors’ appointments
- And more
The Oakland disability discrimination attorney at The Armstrong Law Firm will help you pursue a claim for compensation if your employer denies your request. You may have the right to recover lost wages, mental anguish damages, punitive damages, and more.
Protect Your Disability Discrimination Case Early
Disability discrimination cases often rely on circumstantial evidence to build them. As such, your ability to document acts of discrimination is critical. While our Okland employment lawyer will discover the missing pieces when you hire us, it is always helpful to have documentation.
Take the following steps to protect your disability discrimination case as early as possible:
- Step 1. Document all forms of disability discrimination
- Step 2. Obtain a copy of the internal employee handbook
- Step 3. Review the company’s policy on requesting reasonable accommodations
- Step 4. Follow through on the request
- Step 5. If they do not make reasonable accommodations, speak with an Oakland disability discrimination attorney
These steps are not exhaustive. However, they do provide a general idea of what you or your loved one should try accomplishing before filing a disability discrimination claim. Get legal advice from our Oakland disability discrimination attorneys if you are unsure about what to do next.
