Aggressive Counsel in Disability-Based Discrimination Claims in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
Proven Employment Lawyers Serving New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
Pursuant to federal and state laws, an employer in New York may not treat an employee differently based on a recognized disability. The laws also prohibit acts that have a disparate impact on a worker who is disabled, limiting decisions regarding hiring and firing, compensation, promotions and raises, work assignments and benefits. The employer must also make reasonable accommodations to disabled employee, so that they can be gainfully employed. If you or someone you love has a disability and has suffered an adverse consequence at work because of it, we can help.

We will keep you involved and informed throughout the legal process, explaining the law and process to you, as well as your options and likelihood of success, so that you can make smart decisions about how you want to proceed. We’ll promptly notify you of any developments in your case, and will work hard to return all calls, text messages and emails in a timely manner.
Our Disability Discrimination Practice
We offer full-service legal counsel to men and women who have been victims of discrimination at work under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or the New York Human Rights Law. We’ll carefully review the facts and circumstances of your case to establish:
- That you are covered under state or federal disability discrimination laws
- That you have a physical or mental condition that qualifies as a disability under the appropriate statute
- Whether your employer has made a “reasonable accommodation” for your disability, as mandated by law
If we determine that you have a valid claim, we’ll prepare and file the necessary documentation with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to initiate a legal claim for your losses. We will also handle all matters in a civil action in court.
