Understanding Your Rights Under the Americans With Disabilities Act and Section 504
First and foremost, you should understand your rights under the Americans With Disabilities Act and Section 504. Section 504 and ADA are interpreted almost identically, and they state that you have a right to request reasonable accommodations. If you can prove that you have either a physical or mental impairment (and have a record of this impairment) you should be protected under these laws, so long as you can demonstrate that you are otherwise capable of fulfilling the conditions of your employment. Employers are legally required to provide employees with reasonable accommodations as long as the accommodations do not impose undue hardship on the employer in question. At the very least, employers must enter into a dialogue to negotiate reasonable accommodations with you. If you believe that your rights afforded under the ADA or Section 504 were infringed by your employer, and our firm is here to help.
