Disability/Reasonable Accommodation Retaliation
Hamilton County Reasonable Accommodation Attorneys
Many employers have a poor understanding of their obligations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA is a federal anti-discrimination statute that was created to ensure that people with physical and mental disabilities have an opportunity to obtain and maintain gainful employment.
One of the ways that the ADA seeks to achieve its goal is through the mandate that employers provide reasonable accommodations to disabled employees to better enable them to succeed in the workplace. When employees request reasonable accommodations, they may not be subjected to termination, demotion, harassment or any other form of retaliation.
If you believe you may have been subjected to retaliation for making an ADA request for a reasonable accommodation at your place of employment, contact Mezibov Butler in Cincinnati, Ohio. An experienced ADA lawyer at our firm can review the facts of your case and help you determine how best to proceed.
