Here is some information for people being psychologically abused in their workplaces due to their disabilities. For you, there are laws to protect your rights to a safe and healthy workplace.
Workplace cultures have come to include increasing numbers of workers with disabilities. These people cope with either physical or mental impairments that may have made it difficult for them to enjoy equal employment opportunities in the not-so-distant past. This should no longer be the case since federal and state laws define what responsibilities employers have when it comes to ensuring the rights of employees with disabilities.
The Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) makes it illegal for an employer with 15 or more employees to treat qualified applicants or employees unfavorably based on a person’s disability. In Illinois, the Human Rights Act also covers disability discrimination. Both laws make it illegal for employers to fail to make reasonable accommodations so that a disabled employee can do their job. Even though there are laws that specifically state that discrimination based on disability is illegal, employers and employees alike may remain unclear when it comes to what constitutes a disability and to what lengths an employer must go to in order to provide reasonable accommodations.
