In the modern era, it is a sad fact that discrimination continues to affect employees from all sorts of backgrounds. If you experience discrimination, your career and your entire life may be affected in many ways. At Alan Lescht and Associates, our firm knows how upsetting discrimination can be and we also understand the financial toll of unfair treatment. In addition to religious discrimination, gender-based discrimination and racial discrimination, employees are also discriminated against because of their disabilities. In Washington, D.C., and in cities across America, it is pivotal for those who suspect unlawful disability discrimination in the workplace to take action.
Whether an employer fails to make reasonable accommodations for an employee with a particular disability or a worker is denied benefits that he or she is entitled to, disability discrimination takes many forms. Moreover, disability discrimination may occur during the application process if an employer refuses to hire a qualified and capable employee solely because of his or her disability. Sometimes, those who are expecting a child are also subjected to discrimination at their place of work.
