What Is The Americans With Disabilities Act?
There are laws in place in order to protect employees in their working environment. The Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, prohibits employers from discriminating against employees or applicants with disabilities. It protects you in all aspects of employment, including:
The ADA has clear rules as to what counts as a disability, and then the employer must adjust accordingly. If your disability is not apparent, you must request the accommodations you need. If they don’t, they may be held liable. The only time a business doesn’t have to provide accommodation is if it adds significant difficulty or expense to the business.
The Wisconsin Fair Employment Act And The Illinois Human Rights Act
Wisconsin and Illinois also have specific laws that protect workers against workplace discrimination. The Wisconsin Fair Employment Act and the Illinois Human Rights Act prohibit employers from discriminating against employees or job applicants due to age, race, disability, military service, pregnancy and sexual orientation – among other things.
Even if you think you might not have a case, it is best to talk with an experienced attorney. We can help you work through the process and determine your next steps. Don’t take on the complicated legal system alone.
