Disability-Related Hostile Work Environment
A hostile work environment exists whenever disability discrimination becomes so prevalent that it prevents any employee from carrying out his or her job functions. Typically, employers are considered to be complicit in the creation of a hostile work environment if they either have done nothing to prevent the discrimination or have directly participated in that discrimination.
If you have been subject to a hostile work environment in Austin, the disability-related hostile work environment attorneys at The Melton Law Firm will do everything they can to hold your Austin employer accountable for their part in your discrimination.
How Disability Discrimination May Create a Hostile Work Environment
As the basis of a hostile work environment claim in Austin, discrimination must have been experienced over a period of time by a worker who the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects, including:
- Workers with documented disabilities
- Workers with a history of impairment
- Workers who are regarded as disabled by their employer
Our Austin legal team is committed to protecting the rights of Austin-area workers against any Austin employer who engages in or allows disability discrimination.
