The Americans with Disabilities Act stops employers, state and local governments, labor unions and employment agencies from discriminating against individuals that are qualified but have disabilities. The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against disabled persons such as mentally impaired persons or those with records of impairment, during hiring, firing, promoting, compensation, training and other terms of employment.
Employers are required to make accomodations for known disabilities of qualified applicants, only if the disability would not impose "undue hardship" on the job. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, employers are not required to lower quality or production standards to accomodate for disabled employees. Employers are also under no obligation to provide special items such as glasses or hearing aids.
If you have been wrongfully denied an employment opportunity on terms of "undue hardship," an employment lawyer can help you. An employment lawyer can assist you by asking the courts to examine the nature of the accomodations, as well as the overall financial resource of the employer and the impact your disability makes to the operation of the business.
