Even though the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits employers from discriminating against employees because of their disability or perceived disability, some employers fail to meet the requirements laid out under the law. In some cases, employers have even ignored and blatantly violated this important law, which has resulted in individuals being denied employment, employees being passed over for promotion, wrongful termination and inadequate accommodations.
Employees with disabilities are just as capable of performing their job as an able-bodied person, provided an employer accommodates accordingly for their needs. Unfortunately, many employers see disabilities and the act of accommodating for disabilities as a burden — one they do not want to support. As a result, employers may engage in discriminatory activity and fail to uphold the standards set by employment law regulations.
