Newark Handicap Discrimination Lawyers

Under the New Jersey Law Against Discrimination, it is unlawful to discriminate against an individual because he or she has been disabled at any time. This includes unlawful employment practices against the individual, unless the nature and extent of the disability preclude the individual from performing a particular job. N.J.S.A. 10:5-4.1

In 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was created to protect the rights of employees with disabilities. Employers are required under the ADA to make accommodations for individuals with a wide range of disabilities such as:

  • Physical handicaps
  • Mental disabilities
  • Emotional disabilities
  • Serious illnesses

Accommodations include providing handicap accessibility in buildings and allowing time off for medical appointments. In addition, the ADA also prohibits public and private employers from discriminating against qualified individuals because of a disability. Unfortunately, some employers do not care about what the law says.

At Krumholz Dillon, P.A., we have assisted clients with handicap discrimination claims, whether the discrimination occurs during an interview, job training or with respect to promotions. Our attorneys strive to make sure that every person is given an equal opportunity in the workforce.
