Disabilities In The Workplace

If an employee has a disability and it’s affecting their ability to work, it is important to engage in a dialogue with their employer. If there is an accommodation that the employer can make so that the worker is able to fully function in their job, it should be implemented. This is so they can perform the essential functions of their assigned tasks. Sometimes, employees are afraid to tell their employer about a disability because they don’t want to be considered ‘less than’ but an employer doesn’t have the responsibility to engage in that dialogue unless they know that there’s a medical reason for the accommodation.

If you require strong legal representation for matters of employment law, personal injury, real estate, or criminal defense, contact an experienced attorney at the Vigilante Law Firm, P.C. today to schedule an initial consultation.
