Discrimination Claims In The Workplace - Silver Spring, MDIn this article, you can discover:

  • How to determine if you have a valid discrimination claim.
  • Steps to take if you believe you’ve been discriminated against under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

What Is The Best Way To Determine If You Have A Valid ADA Discrimination Claim?

To evaluate if you have an ADA claim, it’s essential to consult an attorney promptly. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC’s) website also offers guidance, including categories of disabilities and common ADA violations, which could help in initial assessments. Still, it’s crucial to review your situation with an employment lawyer to ensure your rights are upheld.

What Should You Do If You Believe You’ve Been A Victim Of ADA Discrimination?

  1. Communicate with Your Employer First: Before involving lawyers, try to resolve any misunderstandings with your employer. It’s essential to get things in writing, whether through emails or letters, to keep a record.
  2. Engage with the EEOC: If informal communication with the employer isn’t fruitful, you might consider filing a charge of discrimination with the EEOC. They will assign an investigator to your case who will reach out to the employer.
  3. Consider Legal Action: If neither of the above steps yields results, hiring an attorney to explore further legal avenues might be the best course of action.

Are There Deadlines To Be Aware Of When Filing An ADA Discrimination Claim?

Yes, deadlines depend on state laws and can vary. Generally, you have either 180 days or 300 days to file your charge with the EEOC after the discriminatory conduct. Once the EEOC completes its investigation, if they decide not to pursue the case, they issue a “notice of right to sue” letter, starting a 90-day countdown to file a lawsuit in federal court. Given the complex nature of these time frames and the potential for errors, it’s advisable to consult with an employment attorney as soon as possible.
