Disability discrimination at work could come in many forms. The ADA provides requirements for anti-discrimination and reasonable accommodations. Here are some examples of what you could be within your rights to request:
Public services, most notably public transit, must be accessible to people with disabilities under Title II of the ADA. The applies to (but is not limited to) the following Chicagoland and Illinois transit services:
Public services, including these transit authorities, cannot deny your participation in programs or activities that are offered to people without disabilities. Please contact us for any specific questions regarding your access under Title II.
Under ADA’s Title III, you have the right to reasonable accessibility at public accommodations, which include nearly all types of private businesses that serve the public. Examples include restaurants, grocery stores, malls, and even private busses.
New buildings for these types of businesses need to be ADA compliant. If accessibility is readily achievable, businesses must remove any existing barriers.
The ADA also applies to telecommunications and various other situations. If you believe that you were denied opportunity of any kind because of your disability, the ADA might apply to your situation. The same could be true if your employer is not making reasonable accommodations that would allow you to perform your job.
