Disability And Reasonable Accommodation Claims
Under provisions of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), federal law requires employers with 15 or more employees to make reasonable workplace accommodations to meet the needs of workers with disabilities. This does not mean that workers with disabilities are afforded special consideration for hiring or promotions on the job. It does also not mean that employers may not terminate employees, other than for reasons specifically related to the disability.
If you are a worker with a disability in Michigan and you feel your employer is not making reasonable accommodations according to the ADA, or you were terminated because of the lack of reasonable accommodations, you may have a valid claim for damages.
