Bipartisan support led Congress to pass the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family and Medical Leave Act in the 1990’s. Generally speaking, the ADA prohibits discrimination against employees because of actual or perceived disabilities. The failure to offer a reasonable accommodation is discrimination. The FMLA requires certain employers to offer leave for serious health conditions and for certain military deployments. Both laws prohibit employers from retaliating against employees for exercising rights protected by these laws. The attorneys of Graybill & Hazlewood, LLC have litigated numerous FMLA and ADA cases in federal court.
