From discrimination based upon an employee's gender to the rejection of an application solely because of a person's age, there are a number of examples of unlawful discrimination in the workplace. However, some workers may also find themselves facing discrimination because of their disability, which can be very devastating. In Washington, D.C., and across the United States, workers who believe they have been illegally discriminated against because of their disability should not hesitate to stand up for themselves.
Two disabled veterans who have been employed by a bank claim that they have been subjected to discrimination. According to the two employees, they are being forced to work longer hours and relocate to the bank's Washington D.C. headquarters, which would be especially difficult due to their disabilities. Furthermore, another employee, also a veteran with a disability, said that she was denied a promotion and is currently involved in a lawsuit with her employer.
