Family Responsibilities & Disability Discrimination Representation
F. TRAVIS BUCHANAN, ESQ., & ASSOCIATES, PLLC has years of experience handling claims related to those with disabilities and in need of reasonable accommodations in the workplace, and employees who need to take leaves of absence because of pregnancy, medical conditions, or caregiving responsibilities. We believe that employment decisions should be based on what people can do and not based on perceptions about what they cannot do.
Disability Discrimination is Illegal
We have significant experience handling claims involving the federal Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (“ADA”) and state and city laws that protect individuals with disabilities from discrimination in the workplace. Our team is experienced with the complex issues surrounding whether employees have disabilities under the legal definition; whether they are entitled to accommodations for their disabilities and, if so, what accommodations; and whether, taking their disabilities into account, they are qualified to do particular jobs. We also have experience proving that employers discriminated against employees based on myths, fears, and stereotypes about their disabilities.
If you have been a victim of discrimination based on your actual or perceived disability, or if your employer has retaliated against you for complaining about such in your workplace, please contact us today. The law provides a limited amount of time to pursue your rights.
