No employee should be subject to any form of discrimination or harassment from their employer—especially those with disabilities. In Kansas City, employees with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations and protections under both state and federal laws. If you have a disability and feel that these requirements are not being upheld in your workplace, it is essential to seek legal counsel from a Kansas City disability discrimination lawyer. 

At Hollis Law Firm, our lawyers can provide you with the essential guidance you need. We represent employees in Kansas City experiencing all kinds of employment law discrepancies. Our team is committed to advocating for our clients and ensuring they receive the justice they deserve. Here is some important information to know about disability discrimination in Kansas City. 

What to Know About Disability Discrimination in Kansas City

No employee—but especially those with disabilities—should have to experience discrimination at their job. If you were rejected from a job, denied a promotion, or are subject to inconsiderate statements or inappropriate jokes about your disability, you may be able to file a claim for disability discrimination. 

In accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, any person with a disability must have access to the same rights and opportunities as their coworkers. This law protects individuals from discrimination on the basis of disability and requires employers to make reasonable provisions for their employees with disabilities to ensure they are able to meet their full potential. 

What Is Considered a Disability in Kansas City?

In Kansas and Missouri, an employee or job applicant with a disability is one who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity, or is regarded by the employer as having such an impairment, but can still perform the essential functions of the job (either with or without a reasonable accommodation). You may legally be considered to have a disability if you have any physical or mental condition that affects your ability to walk, hear, see, talk, and conduct other essential functions. For example, having a speech impediment, limp, or mental illness are all considered disabilities.  

How Can Employers Discriminate Against Their Disabled Employees?

In accordance with Missouri and Kansas laws, employers are prohibited from discriminating against any potential or existing employees. Some of the ways and scenarios in which an employer may discriminate against persons with disabilities include: 

    • An employee has a condition that requires regular treatment but their employer refuses to let them miss work. 
    • Your employer or coworkers make fun of your condition or refer to it in an inappropriate manner.
    • An employer fails to make accommodations for your disability.  
    • An employer chooses not to hire a candidate due to their disability.
    • An employer does not promote an employee because of their disability.

    These are just a few scenarios that describe disability discrimination. If you suspect you have been discriminated against because of your disability, you should meet with a skilled disability discrimination lawyer. 

    You Have the Right to Reasonable Accommodation

    If you have a disability, you have the right to reasonable accommodations. This means that by law, your employer must make reasonable arrangements to ensure you can do your work. In Kansas City, if you have a disability but can still perform your job with a little help, your employer is required to provide you with that assistance. 

    If you feel that you have been discriminated against in your workplace, it’s important to take action. Working with a skilled Kansas City discrimination lawyer is the best way to ensure your rights are protected.

I would recommend Hollis with all of my heart!

I found out about Hollis Law Firm from an advertisement on TV... I really did not know what to expect, but this firm was amazing. Everyone I spoke to during the two-year period treated me with complete respect. I was amazed how hard the firm worked…They truly never gave up. Hollis Law Firm had succeeded in getting justice for my family. It did not and can never bring my mother back, which is what I truly desire more than any settlement, but I believed in my heart that there was fault on behalf of this company and others. I will always be grateful to all of the lawyers and staff of Hollis for helping me gain closure… Great firm.

The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions!

Jason’s patience with all my questions throughout this rather long process was very reassuring. My many calls were always answered promptly and professionally by the Hollis staff. If Jason was not immediately available, he would always return my calls the same day or at the latest, the next day. The Hollis staff did a great job answering questions, but never guessed at answering. If they could not answer a question they quickly passed it on to Jason. Jason did a very good job of explaining the legal issues with my case, how the process worked, and what all my options were when applicable. Jason and everyone I spoke with at Hollis were always professional and seemed to genuinely care about me and my case. I felt very comfortable working with Jason and the Hollis Law Firm staff. I would be totally at ease recommending Jason and the Hollis Law Firm to anyone.
