We truly care about your situation and you can trust us to work hard to help you achieve your goals in the case, whether you wish to be reinstated in your position and/or want to secure monetary damages.
How to Prove Wrongful Termination Based on Disability
In order to win your case, we will need to prove the following key points:
- You Have a Qualifying Disability: In order to be considered disabled under the law, you must have a physical or mental injury, disease, or ailment that substantially limits your life and/or your ability to earn a living.
- You Are Able to Do Your Job: If your disability makes it impossible for you to fulfil your job responsibilities, obviously this is a problem. However, before firing you, your employer must consider whether any reasonable accommodation may be made which would enable you to continue working.
- A Wrongful Termination Occurred: Assuming you do have a qualifying disability and you are or would be able to do your job with reasonable accommodation, you may still be fired for poor performance or for no reason at all. In order to show that you were a victim of wrongful termination, we must show that your dismissal was directly related to your disability.
