Holding Employers Accountable For Medical (FMLA) And Disability (ADA) Discrimination

Having to deal with family matters or disabilities while working can be a challenge. In many cases, individuals will need a leave of absence or accommodations to ensure they can perform their jobs to the highest standards possible. Unfortunately, employers often use these federally protected needs to discriminate against employees. This is illegal and employers need to be held accountable for their actions.

What To Know About The FMLA, ADA, And Arizona Paid Sick Time Law

Both FMLA and ADA are federally mandated and employers are obligated to follow these laws.
  • FMLA: The Family and Medical Leave Act was enacted to protect employees who encounter family or medical situations that take them away from their job. According to the law, a qualifying employee is provided with unpaid leave for up to 12 weeks each year. The leave would be due to many specified reasons, including serious health issues or caring for a sick family member. While an employee is out on approved leave, the employer is expected to maintain the employee’s health insurance. The employer is also expected to return the employee to a job position that is the same or equivalent to the one they held when they started their leave.
  • ADA: The Americans with Disabilities Act is also a federal law. This law was designed to protect people with disabilities, preserving their rights in the workplace and helping to remove obstacles that may prevent them from being gainfully employed and earning a living. Numerous disabilities and medical conditions are covered by this act and employers who take action against protected individuals are in violation of the law.
  • Arizona Paid Sick Time: The Fair Wages and Healthy Families Act mandates that Arizona employers grant paid sick time to their employees. If an employer does not comply with the regulations under this act, including granting the amount of sick time mandated by law, an employee has the right to pursue justice.
Any discrimination based on issues involving FMLA or ADA is prohibited. It does occur, however. For example, if an employee returns from FMLA leave and finds themselves demoted or in a lesser position at work, this is illegal. If workplace accommodations are requested to suit an employee’s documented disability and they are then denied promotions or treated with hostility, this is also illegal. Our firm does not tolerate any type of workplace discrimination and is committed to fighting for your rights.
