Helping Companies Fight Accusations Of ADA Violations
The ADA prohibits employers from discriminating against qualified employees who are disabled or perceived to be disabled. Disabled employees must be able to perform the essential functions of their job with or without reasonable accommodation as may be appropriate.
The ADA requires employers to engage in an active interactive process with a qualified disabled employee to explore and implement reasonable accommodations that will allow a disabled worker to perform the essential functions of the job as long as the accommodations are not unduly burdensome to the employer.
ADA violations involving accusations of failure to accommodate frequently center on whether a requested accommodation was reasonable or whether it was unduly burdensome. The reality is that many businesses would like to provide accommodations, but some of them simply cannot afford to do so.
Other accusations of violations of the ADA include allegations of direct disability discrimination, which may include failure to hire or promote, adverse discipline, termination, constructive discharge or similar acts because the qualified employee was disabled.
