We Challenge Employers Who Engage In Disability Discrimination

Being treated poorly due to a disability is hurtful. When it happens in the workplace, it is also illegal. You deserve a career free from discriminatory obstacles.

Count on Thorman Petrov Group to advocate for your civil rights at work. Based in Cleveland, our attorneys are committed to making a difference in the lives of Ohio workers. We will protect your interests and career opportunities against disability discrimination.

Employers Should Not Assume You Cannot Perform Well

Employers cannot discriminate against job candidates and employees who have a disability, such as:

  • Blindness or low vision
  • Hearing impairment or deafness
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder and other mental health conditions
  • Arthritis
  • Epilepsy and other neurological conditions
  • Amputation
  • Paralysis

Disabilities may be a lifelong condition, a result of a sudden accident or a natural development as a worker ages. Employers might treat you unfairly because of differences that have nothing to do with your ability to do the job.

Many workers with disabilities lead successful careers – and regardless of success, all workers with disabilities deserve a fair chance. Our team’s mission is to make sure you have access to justice.

Denial Of Accommodations Could Be Discriminatory

If you have a disability or a limiting medical condition, state and federal laws require your employer to discuss possible accommodations with you. These adjustments may be essential to make your job more feasible or comfortable.

Simple fixes like a bigger computer screen, a flexible work schedule, a quiet work area, ramps or access to an elevator are a few examples of reasonable accommodations. These changes can make the difference between an employee with a disability being able to provide for their family and unemployment or public assistance.

From precedent-setting litigation to multiple seven-figure verdicts, attorneys at Thorman Petrov Group have the experience to help you. We can work with you and your employer to protect your right to reasonable adjustments at work, or we can represent you in a lawsuit if necessary. Your needs come first at our firm.

We Will Fight On Your Side

When an employer refuses to hire you, refuses to listen to your requests or denies you an accommodation that would make it easier for you to do your job, they violate the law. We aggressively pursue the rights of disabled workers. Call 216-777-4163 or email us if your employer has violated your rights.
