Disability Discrimination | Failure To Accommodate | Human Rights Violations
At Gannett Sowden Law, PLLC, we are committed to protecting the rights of disabled persons. State and federal laws provide powerful protections to disabled individuals:
The Rehabilitation Act protects people with a qualifying physical or mental disability. The act apples to employers, educational institutions and other organizations that receive funds from the federal government. The act prohibits such employers and organizations from discriminating against disabled persons. Specifically, the act states that employers and organizations receiving federal funds may not exclude or deny individuals with disabilities an equal opportunity to receive program benefits and services.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits employers from discriminating against disabled persons. Discrimination includes wrongful termination and other adverse employment actions.
Montana law also provides protections to disabled workers.
Human Rights Violations
The Rehabilitation Act, the ADA and Montana law require that disabled persons shall receive reasonable accommodations. A failure to accommodate is a basis for a disability discrimination claim.
