Disability Discrimination

Navigation:  Home > Employment Law> Disability Discrimination



The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires covered entities, including private employers, to provide reasonable accommodations to the known physical or mental limitations of an otherwise qualified individual with a disability who is an applicant or employee, unless such covered entity can demonstrate that the accommodation would impose an undue hardship.

In order to prove case of disability discrimination on a unlawful termination claim, an employee must show that: 1) his or her employer is subject to the Americans with Disabilities Act; 2) her or she suffers from a disability within the meaning of the ADA; 3) her or she could perform the essential function of her job with or without reasonable accommodation; and 4) he or she was discharged because of his or her disability.
