Mental Disability Discrimination

Federal, state and local statutes, as well as public policy, create protections and entitlements for qualified individuals with mental disabilities.

These laws also provide guarantees of reemployment to eligible employees who take their job-protected leave of absence.

Disability discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee or applicant individual with a qualified disability unfavorably because they have a disability. Disability discrimination may also occur when an employer fails to provide an employee with a mental or physical disability with all entitlements required by the law.

A complex interaction of federal, state and local statutes creates confusing filing requirements, deadlines and procedures which must be strictly followed before moving forward with a discrimination claim.
