Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination occurs when an employer treats an employee differently because the employee has a disability, has a history of a disability, or is perceived by the employer as disabled. The same is true when a landlord discriminates against leasing to a tenant on the grounds of the prospective tenants disability. Both forms of discrimination can carry significant penalties including the possibility of collecting punitive damages.
