According to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers are not allowed to discriminate against people with disabilities. As long as an individual is able to perform the duties required of a job and has the skills necessary to do so, his or her disability should not be taken into consideration.
If an employer's bias or prejudice against people with disabilities motivated him or her to treat you unfairly, attempt to intimidate you, deny you advancement, refuse to employ you or fail to provide you with fair and just wages, you may have a disability discrimination case.
Failing to make reasonable accommodations for a disabled employee could also be grounds for a discrimination case against an employer. It is important to know that not all employers are bound by the ADA, however there may be other anti-discrimination laws which can be applied in your specific situation.
