Workplace Harassment Cases
If you feel you are being bullied or disrespected at work because of your disability, you may have a case. According to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), it is illegal for workers to disparage someone because of their disability, a past disability, or a minor physical or mental impairment that is not transitory.
Some forms of harassment may include:
- Offensive remarks about a person’s condition.
- Comments which lead to the person’s demotion or firing.
- A hostile environment that encourages the person to leave the company.
- Putting the victim in situations that would highlight their disability for the purpose of mocking that person.
- Asking a job applicant questions about their current medical history or requiring them to take a medical exam.
Harassment can come from anyone at the company, be it a supervisor, coworker, or even a client. Victims of harassment should not tolerate this behavior. Instead, they should hire an aggressive and effective attorney to advocate for them immediately. With decades of combined legal experience backing up our team, the Barkhordarian Law Firm legal team is here to help.
Reasonable Accommodation in Disability Cases
Individuals with disabilities may need some special accommodations to enjoy comfort and security at their jobs. The law requires that companies grant these requests as long as they do not cost the employer a significant amount of money or cause significant difficulties.
A reasonable accommodation would include anything that changes the work environment in order to help a person perform the duties of a job, apply for a job, or enjoy the benefits of a job. This could include wheelchair accessibility, an interpreter for the deaf, or flexible scheduling due to doctor’s appointments.
If your request for accommodation is denied, a lawyer at our firm can take a look at the case. You may have the right to pursue legal action if we can determine that the denial was unjust and does not fall under the protections of undue hardship to the employer.
