Experienced Employment Law Attorney—Psychiatric Discrimination
Protecting the Rights of Workers in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut
The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (the “ADA”) prohibits unfair or disparate treatment in the workplace based on recognized medical conditions, including mental health issues. An employer may not treat you differently than other workers because of depression or other designated psychological challenges and must make “reasonable accommodations” to allow you to perform your job. If you have been a victim of discrimination on the job because of a psychiatric issue, the Law Office of Justin A. Zeller can protect your rights.
At the Law Office of Justin A. Zeller, we have fought for workers in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut for nearly two decades, providing aggressive advocacy in workplace discrimination claims, including violations of the ADA. We know the importance of work in your life, as a way to provide for yourself and your family, and as a part of your self-esteem. We’ll be at your side throughout any legal challenge, gathering and preserving evidence, preparing and filing any necessary documents, and acting as your voice in all hearings, meetings and legal proceedings.
When you hire us to protect you from wrongful psychiatric discrimination at work, we’ll conduct a thorough investigation of the facts of your case and will take the time to learn exactly what you need to move forward. We’ll immediately notify you of any developments in your case, as well as your options and prospects for success, so that you can make good decisions about how you want to proceed. We work hard to be available and accessible when you have questions or concerns, and will respond to all calls, emails and text messages in a timely manner.
Strong Representation for Workers in Psychiatric Discrimination Claims
When you retain our firm to advocate for you in a psychiatric discrimination claim, we’ll take the following steps to ensure that your rights are protected:
- Confirm that your employer is required by law to follow the provisions of the ADA
- Establish that you are a “covered employee” according to the terms of the ADA
- Retain expert witnesses to verify that your mental health issues qualify as a disability under the ADA
- Conduct a thorough investigation to determine whether your employer could have made “reasonable accommodations” for your condition without incurring undue hardship
If we establish that you have a valid discrimination claim, we’ll take appropriate measures to initially bring your complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and will be your advocate in all court proceedings to recover for losses suffered.
