Having a disability, whether temporary or permanent, can make certain areas of life more difficult than for those who are able-bodied. However, having a disability does not mean that a person cannot carry out his or her necessary work duties and have a fulfilling career. In some cases, certain accommodations may be needed in order to have that success, and most employers have a legal obligation to provide reasonable accommodations. If that does not happen, employment law issues could result.
Being dismissed from a job is not often an easy or enjoyable experience for workers in Oregon or elsewhere. This type of scenario can become even more difficult when a person is unjustly fired as the result of retaliation. Wrongful termination is not uncommon, and workers do have legal rights when it comes to addressing this type of action.
