The Americans with Disabilities Act and Washington State Law Against Discrimination prohibit employees from being discriminated against solely on the basis of a physical or mental disability. If you have a disability and are able to perform the basic tasks of a job, your employer must make reasonable accommodations for the disability to assist you to perform your job. Even temporary physical or mental disability is protected by Washington State disability discrimination law. If you believe you have been discriminated against by an employer, please contact a Washington disability discrimination lawyer at Teller & Associates.
The Americans with Disabilities Act Title I states that it is against the law to discriminate against an individual because of a disability in regards to hiring, promotions, employment training, wages, and work-related privileges. Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act also states that potential employers may not inquire about a person's disability before the applicant is hired. If requested by an employee with a disability, or even without a request if there is an obvious need, an employer must provide the employee with reasonable accommodations for tasks associated with the job. Such accommodations may include:
If you believe that you have been discriminated against in your workplace due to your physical or mental disability, you may be able to file a disability discrimination claim against your employer. Federal laws regarding accommodations in the workplace only apply to companies with fifteen or more employees, but Washington law covers smaller employers. Each case is individually assessed to determine if the accommodations must be made. Companies that are required to make accommodations need only make a "reasonable" accommodation, which means that a very costly or difficult accommodation may be denied if it will cause undue hardship on the company. Employers are usually not required to lower their performance or production standards as an accommodation, but may need to make other accommodations to increase the disabled worker's ability to keep up.
