While it is common for people with disabilities to become comfortable with their temporary or permanent disabilities, those dealing with disabilities should never become comfortable with enduring discrimination or harassment in the work environment due to their disabilities. Our firm understands the seriousness of employment discrimination in the workplace and seeks to assist Minnesota employees when these events occur. Getting a better understanding of their situation and rights can help employees deal with these events and even file a cause of action for the damages that they have suffered as a result.
When an employee is combating disability discrimination, he or she should understand that this treatment is illegal. This occurs most frequently when an employer is not allowing an employee to take time off to seek treatment for his or her disability, fails to make reasonable accommodations in the work environment for the disability or harasses the employee due to his or her disability.
