Austin Disability Discrimination Lawyer
Our Austin disability attorneys represent employees that have been discriminated against for either having or being regarded as having a disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (commonly referred to as the “ADA”) and certain Texas state laws protect employees against disability discrimination. In addition to the ADA, The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects some government employees.
Notify our Austin employment attorneys if you experience any of the following:
- An employer treating a disabled employee as if he or she cannot perform a job, even though the employee is qualified and able.
- An employer refusing to make a reasonable accommodation for a disabled employee
- An employer treating employees differently after the employee discloses a disability (such as HIV, diabetes, cancer, or epilepsy).
What is the ADA Disability Definition?Our Austin discrimination lawyers can help you determine if you meet the ADA definition for what is a disability. After 2008, the ADA was amended and the meaning of the term "disability" expanded to include a much broader range of health issues. For example, depression, bi-polar disorder, and anxiety related disorders are all considered disabilities under the ADA.
