Protecting the Rights of Individuals with Disabilities
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) prohibits discrimination and ensures equal opportunity for individuals with disabilities. Amended in 2008, the ADA provides laws and regulations regarding building design, public accommodations, transportation, TDD / telephone relay services, and employment for Americans with disabilities. Businesses and employers must comply with the laws found in the ADA to ensure that individuals with disabilities are not subject to discrimination as a consumer, patron, client, or employee.
As an American with a recognized disability, you should not be treated as inferior to any person. Whether you’ve been employed and are experiencing discrimination, or if you are being denied a job or promotion due to your disability, you may be able to bring the matter to light and obtain compensation through a claim. You can also file a lawsuit if you have faced harassment or discrimination while in a shop, restaurant, or any other business. Chavez Law Firm handles all types of employment law cases and can help you file a lawsuit against anyone who is violating your rights under the ADA. We have 20 years of collective legal experience and are more than willing to discuss your legal options with you through an initial case evaluation.
