Disability Discrimination (ADA Claims)

Strong Advocates for Employees with Disabilities in Michigan

The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and other state and federal disability discrimination laws provide employees with the right to be free of discrimination due to actual or perceived disabilities.

At Blanchard & Walker, we represent employees with serious disabilities and health conditions who face discrimination at work. Our attorneys aggressively advocate for employees who are discriminated against or denied reasonable accommodations to which they are entitled.

The Rights of Employees Under the ADA

The ADA and similar state laws provide protection in hiring, firing, promotion, demotion, training, pay, and other privileges of employment. Employees with disabilities also have the right to reasonable accommodations in the workplace, which may include:

  • Modified work schedule
  • Work-from-home arrangements
  • Changes to workspace
  • Time off work
  • Job reassignments

How We Can Help

We understand how scary it is to come forward and report wrongdoing by an employer. You may even feel unsure about whether what you are experiencing is actually discrimination. We can answer your questions, examine your situation, gather the facts, and determine whether you have a viable disability discrimination claim. In consultation with each client, our disability rights attorneys help to assess the best strategy to achieve the workplace accommodations the law requires and to protect careers and reputations. When illegal disability discrimination has already occurred, we have the tools to recover for illegal discrimination in court.
