Fired Because You Developed A Serious Illness?
One of the common types of disability discrimination cases we see is employees who are diagnosed with cancer or another serious illness. Their employer, often to avoid insurance costs, fires the employee. This is illegal. Your employer cannot terminate your employment because you have developed an illness. If this has happened to you, it is important to contact an experienced attorney.
The lawyers at Poncio Law Offices, P.C., have worked countless discrimination cases. We will defend you against your employer, and work to get the compensation you deserve. Our office is located in San Antonio, and we work with clients in the surrounding areas around Texas.
What Is A Failure To Accommodate Claim?
If you have a physical or mental disability, your employer must make reasonable accommodations to allow you to perform your essential tasks. The Americans with Disabilities Act establishes the fact that employers cannot discriminate against employees with a disability.
These cases often take the form of employers either not hiring someone based on their disability, or not giving the employee the resources they need to perform essential job duties. If either of these situations occur, you may have a disability discrimination case against the employer in question.
