Detroit Federal Employee Disability Discrimination Attorney

Suffering a disabling injury impacts all aspects of your life. However, that temporary or permanent disability should not affect your job. Sadly, many federal employees come to Akeel & Valentine, PLC, fighting for their jobs after a medical leave. Others deal with a workplace rife with discrimination and refusals to accommodate the physical challenges they face.

While considered troubling and unsettling, we view these discriminatory acts as outright hate. At our Detroit, Michigan, law firm, we respond swiftly in our prosecution of this hate. Justice for discrimination, wrongful termination and retaliatory actions begins with one phone call to our law firm.

Pursuing Justice When Employers Violate The ADA

Federal job applicants and longtime public sector employees face disability discrimination on a daily basis despite the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Decisions regarding hiring and firing, promotions and advancement, and schedules and wages based on your disability are prohibited. Yet, there are federal employers who sidestep, if not outright ignore the laws.

Accommodations You Need And Are Entitled To By Law

In addition to unfair hiring decisions, disability discrimination can also take the form of an employer failing or refusing to make reasonable accommodations for employees who need assistance to perform the basic functions of their jobs. Some disabled workers find themselves reassigned.

Examples include:

  • Providing specialized equipment
  • Making alterations to a workstation
  • Providing a handicapped-accessible bathroom
  • Providing an entrance ramp
  • Altering schedules for telecommuting

At Akeel & Valentine, PLC, our attorneys hold federal employers accountable for disability discrimination. Even though we are considered a smaller firm, we have achieved big-firm results that rival our large law office counterparts.
