For those in Minnesota suffering from a disability, most do not allow their disability to prevent them from doing certain things, such as tasks at a job. Furthermore, it is their right that their disability not be used against them in the hiring or firing process at a place of employment. When employment discrimination occurs because of an individual's disability, they might have a cause of action for the damages suffered by this event.
It was recently reported that the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed a nationwide lawsuit against FedEx for disability discrimination. It was reported that the suit was based on claims of discrimination against a large class of package handlers and job applicants that are hard-of-hearing or deaf.
