Employment - ADA Title I

Title I of the ADA protects people with disabilities from discrimination by employers with respect to job application procedures, the hiring, advancement or discharge of employees, employee compensation, job training and other terms, conditions and privileges of employment.  The law applies to employers with 15 or more employees.   If an employee is otherwise qualified to perform the duties of his or her employment, an employer cannot deny a request for a reasonable accommodation by the employee In addition, an employer must honor a request for a reasonable accommodation by an  employee with a disability so that the employee may be able to perform the essential duties of the job.

The FMLA also protects workers’ rights.  If you are a qualified employee and your employer is covered by the FMLA, you are entitled to certain rights under the statute, which includes being permitted to take up to 12 weeks’ of unpaid leave per year without losing your job. 

At Maxwell & Barke LLC, we assist employees by evaluating the merits of a case, and navigating a claim through the system, including the complaint process at the EEOC, and, if necessary, filing a lawsuit to enforce rights.  Since our attorneys have experience in advising both employees and employers, we bring to bear a unique and compelling blend of experience to better assist employees and employers come up with solutions that work for both.

If you feel you have been discriminated against and your rights have been violated because of a disability, under Title I of the ADA or the FMLA, you may e-mail us or telephone for a complimentary case evaluation.
