Disability discrimination is the process of making decisions on hiring, promoting, training, and terminating an employee due to a physical or mental disability. Let us know how to find disability discrimination faced at the workplace.

  • Identify the negative or adverse actions of the employer on you, regarding the issues like hiring, treatment at work, disciplinary actions, reduction in pay or benefits and so on.
  • Make sure whether the employer knows about your disability at that time of discrimination.
  • Ensure yourself if you are able to perform the essential job duties with or without a reasonable accommodation.
