Under the ADA, covered employers are required to make a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of a qualified applicant or employee if that accommodation would not impose an “undue hardship” on the operation of the employer’s business. However, employers are not obligated to reduce or lower quality standards or production levels as a means accommodating
an employee with a disability.
As with other types of discrimination, it is unlawful for employers to retaliate against an employee who opposes an employment practice that discriminates based upon someone’s disability, just as it is unlawful to retaliate against an employee who filed a complaint alleging disability discrimination, provided the complaint was made in good faith.
If you believe you were discriminated against due to a disability, or if you have other questions about how you were treated at work, contact us today.
