Work-related injuries and disability discrimination

People are injured in the workplace in many ways, from mishaps that occur on construction sites (electrocution, injuries involving dangerous machinery, falling off of a ladder and so on) to those which occur in an office setting or on the road. Unfortunately, workplace injuries can make life incredibly tough for victims and those they love. Not only can these injuries lead to physical pain, hospital bills, financial problems from taking time away from work, career changes and emotional issues, they can also shatter a worker’s life in other ways. For example, someone may face discrimination due to a work-related injury.

Disability discrimination is a serious problem that has made daily life incredibly difficult for workers throughout the country. It takes a number of forms and may consist of the wrongful termination of an employee due to their disability (even though they are fully qualified and capable of working), failing to properly accommodate an injured employee’s needs, relentlessly harassing a disabled worker and creating a hostile work environment and refusing to promote someone solely because of their disability.

Disability discrimination can make things even harder for a worker who may already be facing massive challenges. If you have been discriminated against in the workplace due to a work-related disability or any other type of disability, it is vital to know which legal options you may have and take steps to address the illegal behavior. Sadly, many workers do not know their rights, or they decide to stay silent because they worry about additional consequences (retaliation is also illegal).
