Have You Been Treated Unfairly for Being Deaf?
Federal and state laws prohibit employers from discriminating against disable workers. As long as a person has the ability to do the job, he or she may not be passed over for employment or promotion. However, all too often, employers discriminate against the deaf, when deafness does not keep them from performing their job functions.

New York Deaf Discrimination in the Workplace Lawyers
As long as a deaf person can perform his or her job duties, employers cannot take deafness into consideration when making decisions about hiring, firing, promotion and other employment actions.
Companies are also required to provide reasonable accommodations for deaf employees, as long as doing so does not create an undue burden. These accommodations may include speech-to-text phone software, sign language translators and other provisions.
If you have been discriminated against at work for being deaf, an experienced New York deaf discrimination in the workplace attorney can help you understand your legal options. We understand how difficult it is to be held back from employment or advancement for something you can't control, when you are fully qualified to do the job.
