Determined Pennsylvania Attorney Fights Workplace Disability Discrimination

Dedicated law firm advocates for disabled workers with ADA claims in the Philadelphia area

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides rights and protections to workers who have, or are regarded by others as having, a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Walking, talking, seeing, hearing and learning are a few of the major life activities that a disability might affect. At the Law Office of Jonathan W. Chase, I represent disabled individuals who have been unfairly treated by employers. With a comprehensive knowledge of federal, Pennsylvania and local laws, I help wronged clients in the Philadelphia area and throughout Pennsylvania to pursue the working conditions and compensation they deserve.

Committed Pennsylvania counselor advises on disability accommodations

Discriminating against a disabled worker is not only wrong, but also prevents that worker from accessing financial and career opportunities and can cause significant stress. Employers with 15 or more employees are required under law to provide fair treatment for disabled workers and job applicants in regard to:

  • Reasonable accommodations — If you require certain accommodations in order to do your job effectively, employers are required to provide them as long as doing so is not too difficult or too expensive. Installing a wheelchair ramp, adding screen reader software to a computer, and allowing for a service animal may be considered reasonable accommodations.
  • Hiring and promotion — As long as a disabled job applicant or employee is qualified to perform the essential functions of a job, whether with or without reasonable accommodation, it is unlawful for an employer to look less favorably on them when making hiring or promotion decisions.
  • Compensation — Paying a disabled employee less than other workers is illegal. It is also illegal for employers to use other discriminatory practices that affect compensation.
  • Benefits — Employers cannot offer lesser medical benefits to disabled individuals or to individuals with a record of physical or mental impairment.
  • Privacy — The law prohibits employers from sharing an employee’s personal medical information without their consent except when legally necessary.

At the Law Office of Jonathan W. Chase, I am a strong advocate for disabled workers’ rights. I listen closely to your needs and goals so we can work together toward a favorable resolution.

Experienced lawyer represents clients with ADA complaints and EEOC claims

If you believe that an employer treated you unfavorably because of your real or perceived disability, you can seek remedy under the law. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) enforces the parts of the ADA that cover employment discrimination. Before a job discrimination lawsuit can be pursued against an employer, a Charge of Discrimination (or EEOC complaint) must be filed with the EEOC, and the EEOC must issue a Notice of Right to Sue.

The Law Office of Jonathan W. Chase helps clients seek justice from employers who discriminate against people with disabilities. I skillfully represent individuals in negotiations and litigation so that their rights under the ADA are upheld.
