Disability Discrimination

DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION


Individuals with disabilities are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and by state laws in both Pennsylvania and New Jersey. Under the ADA employers are: prohibited from firing employees or refusing to hire employees based on disability; prohibited from refusing to promote employees due to a disability; and required to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled people.

Bell & Bell LLP attorneys have successfully handled hundreds of workplace discrimination and harassment cases, many of which included claims of disability discrimination.

Determining whether to pursue a legal claim is an important decision. You should be aware of your rights and prepared to take action if your rights are violated. Bell & Bell LLP offers free initial consultations, and we will take the time necessary to understand your situation and concerns.

If you believe that you have experienced discrimination based on a disability or have been denied a reasonable accommodation for your disability, you should seek immediate legal assistance.
