New Haven Disability Discrimination Attorney

Powerhouse Representation from a Disability Discrimination Lawyer in Connecticut: (203) 285-8294

There are state and federal laws in place to protect the rights of those who either have a disability or perceived as having one when they do not. Civil rights law, under the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), encompasses Americans who suffer from disabilities related to employment. As long as a disabled employee is adequately qualified to perform a job with reasonable accommodation, this law prohibits any type of discrimination pertaining to his or her employment.

On January 1, 2009, the American with Disabilities Amendment Act (ADAA) became law and it expanded the ADA's definition of disability, impairment, and the condition that constitutes "major life activity", and more. The expected result would be an increase in individuals with covered disabilities. If you feel that you or a loved one has been subject to disability discrimination, consulting with a New Haven disability discrimination attorney is the first step. Our lawyers represent employees, partners and executives in discrimination cases.

Need a Lawyer for a Disability Discrimination Case in New Haven?

According to the ADA, a person who is defined as disabled is "a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment."

The act covers disabilities deemed both permanent as well as temporary. An injured employee who may only have a temporary disability still suffers an illness or condition that might hinder his or her quality of life.

Some disabilities, especially when temporary, that have fallen prey to employment discrimination include and aren't limited to:

  • Recovery from pregnancy
  • Back injuries
  • Trauma treatment
  • Mental anguish
  • Adjusting to changes in cancer or HIV medications
  • Recovery from drug and alcohol addiction
