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.

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.
