No one chooses to have a disability, but disabilities are part of life for many. These disabilities can sometimes have a negative impact on a person’s job. In those cases, knowing which actions constitute unlawful discrimination against disability is important.
Disability discrimination happens when an employer treats a qualified employee or applicant unfavorably because they have a disability. It is unlawful to treat qualified employees or applicants less favorably because of a history of disability, because of the employer’s belief that the individual may have a disability, or because of the individual’s relationship with a person with a disability.
