New Orleans Disability Discrimination Lawyer
Protecting Employees with Disabilities
Federal and state laws protect individuals with disabilities from employment discrimination. A disability includes any physical or mental condition that prevents someone from performing life's functions. Legal protection is also extended to people who are not actually disabled, but are perceived as being so. If you believe you have suffered disability discrimination at work, speak with an experienced lawyer to learn about your rights.

Fighting Louisiana Workplace Disability Discrimination
It is illegal for employers to discriminate against disabled workers in any aspect of employment, including:
- Work assignments
In addition to dealing with the challenges of a disability, many employees face further burdens caused by an employer's refusal to make reasonable accommodations for the condition. If you have encountered problems at work, we will use our experience, skill and tenacity to fight for you. Whether you suffer from a physical disability such as diabetes, heart problems or blindness, or a mental condition such as depression or bipolar disorder, we will help you seek justice.
