Helping You Understand The Disability Discrimination Laws

If you work in New York and you believe you have been discriminated against due to a disability or perceived disability, it is important to contact an employment law attorney immediately who understands all the aspects of your situation and the laws involved.

At Markus & Sheridan, LLP, our New York City disability discrimination lawyers have extensive experience handling a variety of disability discrimination claims. In addition, our employment lawattorneys have the knowledge base required to handle disability discrimination claims at the local, state or federal level.

There are numerous city, state and federal laws that prohibit disability discrimination, including:

  • New York City Human Rights Law
  • New York State Human Rights Law
  • Title I of the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA)

The applicable laws depend greatly upon where the disability discrimination occurred and the size of your employer’s business. Our attorneys will meet with you, discuss all aspects of your situation with you, and help you understand exactly what laws apply. We will then create a proper legal strategy that meets your interests.

Basing Your Claim On A Failure To Accommodate Your Disability

If you, as an employee, requested reasonable workplace accommodations that would allow you to perform your job in a better way without limiting an employer’s business operations, then your request should be granted. When a failure to accommodate occurs, you may have a disability discrimination claim. We will thoroughly analyze your situation to determine whether you have a claim. We will then craft a comprehensive argument on your behalf and seek the appropriate remedy, whether that includes compensation, or a specific action, such as resuming your employment.
