Examples of Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination can manifest in various formats, including:

  • Hiring and Firing: Refusing to hire or wrongfully terminating an individual solely because of their disability.
  • Reasonable Accommodations: Failing to deliver reasonable accommodations to enable a disabled employee to perform their job effectively.
  • Promotions and Benefits: Denying promotions, bonuses, or benefits to an employee due to their disability.
  • Harassment: Subjecting an individual to derogatory comments, jokes, or offensive behavior based on their disability.
  • Job Assignments: Assigning less favorable tasks or responsibilities to an employee because of their disability.

What Proof Do I Need in a Disability Discrimination Case?

Proving disability discrimination requires establishing several key elements:

  • Evidence of Disability: Documentation proving that you have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
  • Adverse Action: Demonstrating that you experienced adverse treatment, such as being fired, demoted, or denied reasonable accommodations, because of your disability.
  • Comparison to Others: Showing that non-disabled individuals in similar situations received more favorable treatment.
  • Employer's Knowledge: Evidence that your employer was aware of your disability and took discriminatory action against you because of it.
  • Pretext: Disproving any legitimate reasons provided by the employer for the adverse action, establishing that discrimination based on disability was the true reason.
