Florida Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Attorney

What Is The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA)?

The Americans with Disabilities Act (or “ADA”) makes it unlawful for employers to discriminate against an individual with a disability.

The truth of the matter is that persons with disabilities often perform their duties at a higher level then other coworkers. Disabled employees can be excellent resources for employers. However, at times, a supervisor allows a bias to get in the way by wrongly perceiving that a person with a disability is going to be a liability, will be unable to do the job, will need to go to the doctor, or worse. Contact our Florida Americans with Disabilities Act attorneys today.

Termination Because Of A Disability

Often, employers will terminate an employee with a disability because the employer believes the employee will be unable to perform the essential functions of the position. Likewise, employers may decline to hire a person with a disability. An employer may not lawfully terminate an employee because of a disability if the employee can perform the essential functions of the job either with or without accommodations.

If you feel you’ve been discriminated against because of a disability, please call us at 954-617-6017 or use the contact form to contact Rob Norell for a free consultation regarding your rights. Our experienced Florida ADA attorney can help you.
