Federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees and job applicants with disabilities. Qualified individuals with disabilities may not be denied employment or advancement because of their disabilities. Also, employers must provide reasonable accommodations to allow disabled individuals to perform their job duties.
At Matheson & Matheson, P.L.C., we represent employers and employees in a broad range of employment law matters, including those involving disability discrimination. If you are an employee and have been discriminated against due to your disability, our Scottsdale and Phoenix disability discrimination attorneys can help you explore your legal options.
If you are an employer facing a disability discrimination lawsuit, or are seeking guidance for regulatory compliance, we are prepared to help.
Family And Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
Under the Family and Medical Leave Act, if you or a family member suffers from a qualifying health condition, you may be entitled to take up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off from your job. The FMLA prohibits employers from firing, demoting or otherwise punishing employees who take FMLA leave.
Our attorneys are well-versed in all federal and state employment law statutes, including FMLA, and are equipped to represent employees and employers in these sensitive legal matters.
