Compensation When You’re Fired because of a Disability

Living with a disability is hard enough without your employer giving you a harder time.

If they fire you because of your medical condition, it leaves you stunned. Can they get away with being so heartless?

Maybe not.

Under Ohio law and the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), firing someone because of their health problems is wrongful termination.

You can stand up for your rights and win reinstatement to your job or a monetary settlement to correct this injustice and move on with your life.

    Signs You’re Facing Wrongful Termination Due to Disability Discrimination

    To determine whether you’ve been the victim of a wrongful termination based on disability discrimination, watch out for signs like these:

    • You were let go because of a past history of health problems, such as a heart attack.
    • You were fired even though you can perform the essential functions of your job.
    • Your supervisor expressed hostile attitudes about your disability.
    • Your employer treated you differently than other workers without disabilities.
    • You were fired because your employer thought you have a disability even though you don’t.
    • You were fired when you asked for allowed medical leave time.
    • Your employer refused to provide reasonable accommodations for your disability before dismissing you.

    The key to proving your disability discrimination wrongful termination claim is showing that your firing was, in fact, because of your disability.

    This is when you need an experienced employment law attorney. The attorneys at HNB know what evidence to gather so your claim has the best chance for success.

    Steps to a Disability Discrimination Wrongful Termination Claim

    If you have a strong feeling that the reason you were terminated from your job was your disability, you can take these steps to set the situation right:

    1. Negotiate a settlement: An attorney can often negotiate with your employer for reinstatement to your job, monetary payment, lost wages, or other compensation or agreements that can be better than what you would get without a lawyer.
    2. File a complaint with regulatory agencies like the federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)  and the Ohio Civil Rights Commission.
    3. File a lawsuit in state or federal court. For federal court, you have to file an EEOC complaint first.

    Don’t hesitate to do what it takes to protect your rights in the workforce.

    At every step, an experienced workplace discrimination lawyer from HNB can help you get the best result so you can move beyond a traumatic job loss.
