Federal Employee Disability Discrimination Attorney
At the federal employment law firm of Josh F. Bowers, P.C., we actively oppose disability discrimination. We have a wealth of experience representing government employees with disabilities, especially those who have been subject to verbal, emotional or physical abuse in the workplace.
The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits the federal government from discriminating against qualified individuals with disabilities in job application procedures, hiring, firing, advancement, compensation, job training and other conditions of employment.
We want to see the law enforced and those who violate it punished, on your behalf. We welcome the opportunity to represent you in the same quality way we've represented others in similar situations for the past 20 years.
If you are a federal employee who has experienced disability discrimination, please contact our law offices today. We are available by phone or e-mail for the scheduling of your initial consultation.
Our law firm represents federal employees nationwide. We are available to travel to your area to represent you in the administrative forums where federal employee disability cases can be successfully resolved.
Dedicated to Protecting the Rights of Federal Employees
A disabled person is an individual considered to have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. Conversely, a qualified employee or applicant with a disability is an individual who, with reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of a specific job.
Reasonable disability accommodation may include making existing facilities used by employees readily accessible to persons with disabilities; restructuring the job, modifying work schedules, reassigning to a vacant position; acquiring or modifying equipment or devices; adjusting or modifying examinations, training materials or policies; and providing qualified readers or interpreters.
A federal agency is required to make a "reasonable" accommodation to the known disability of a qualified applicant or employee providing it doesn't impose an "undue hardship" on the agency.
Our experienced employment lawyers know the law, the terminology and, above all, the methods with which we can most effectively represent your interests in the hiring process, the way you're treated during your employed, and any medical examinations or inquiries that may be involved. We're aware that some disabled employees have been retaliated against during or after these disputes. We are determined that this shouldn't happen to you.
Be in touch with us if your federal work life has been disrupted by one or more instances of disability discrimination.
