New York Employment Law Attorneys Hold Businesses Accountable for Violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act


Aggressively seeking damages from employers that discriminate against employees

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) was originally passed in 1990 to protect persons with disabilities from discrimination in the workplace and throughout society. If you are a person with disabilities, and you have had problems with your employer providing accommodations or you have been refused employment based on your disability, then you may have a cause of action to recover damages under the ADA. At Hepworth, Gershbaum & Roth, PLLC, our disability rights attorneys passionately protecting the rights of the disabled. We take on abusive employers throughout New York and nationally to get victims the compensation they deserve.

What are the types of workplace accommodations that employers must comply with under the ADA?

The ADA obligates employers to make reasonable accommodations (or adjustments) to job tasks or work environments to make it possible for persons with disabilities to perform the duties of the job. Whether or not an accommodation is reasonable depends largely on the circumstances of the case. Our New York disability discrimination attorneys have over seventy years combined litigation experience. We have successfully recovered tens of millions of dollars for our clients because of our results-driven approach to litigating against any employer that violates the law.

The most common inquiries that are made to decide whether an accommodation may be reasonable include:

  • What are the required job tasks?

  • What functional limitations does the person performing the job have?

  • What hardship will applying the accommodation have on the employer?

  • What issues may arise by employing the accommodation?

  • Will specialized equipment be required?

  • Will the facilities need to be modified?

  • What alternative solutions exist?

Which employees are protected from employer discrimination by the ADA?

The ADA applies to all businesses in New York and throughout the country that have 15 or more employees. If you are a person with disabilities that is qualified to do your job, then you have the right to benefit from the full range of employment-related opportunities as anyone else within your company. The law broadly defines a person with a disability as any person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one of more major life activities, has a history of such impairment, or is perceived by others as having such an impairment. If you are concerned that you have been discriminated against, speak with one of our New York ADA lawyers to discuss the facts of your case.
