Employers are not allowed to discriminate against any employee or applicant based on a health condition. This includes a person who has a history of disability, such as cancer that is in remission or that is controlled, or is believed to have a physical or mental impairment, even if that person does not have such an impairment.
The law requires that employers provide reasonable accommodations to employees and job applicants with disabilities, unless doing so would cause significant difficulty or expense for the employer.
At the employment law firm Bononi Law Group, LLP, our firm has handled hundreds of workplace discrimination cases, including those involving harassment and discrimination based on health conditions. If you experienced discrimination in employment, we may be able to help. Call 866-295-7512.
File A Claim With The Assistance Of An Experienced Lawyer
The law does not allow for any discrimination when it comes to any aspect of employment, including:
- Firing and layoffs
- Job assignments and promotions
- Fringe benefits
- Other terms and conditions of employment
Harassment can be as simple as an offensive remark about a health condition or disability or it can be as serious as an adverse employment decision (someone being fired or demoted). Our firm assists clients who have been adversely impacted by this type of discrimination.
