Insight Into Matters Of Disability Discrimination
People with disabilities often feel invisible. It is especially difficult for a person with a disability to feel heard in the workplace; these people often face challenges that non-disabled people simply don’t understand. If you are facing discrimination in the workplace, you don’t have to face it alone.
My name is Ashok Bail. For nearly two decades, I have provided my clients with skilled legal representation in Texas disability claims. For the last ten years, I have been confined to a wheelchair and I understand the difficulties those with disabilities face. I know what you’re experiencing and I want to help you move forward.
Disability Discrimination Is Common
The fact is many employers implicitly discriminate against employees with disabilities, whether they realize it or not. Many workplaces across Houston are simply not created with people with disabilities in mind, and often, Texas employers will shy away from hiring anyone with a disability.
It is illegal for any employer to use your disability status as a reason to:
- Not hire you
- Terminate or suspend you
- Refuse to train you on a task
- Deny you a promotion
If you are interviewing for a job or are currently working somewhere, you and your employer must have a frank, real discussion about reasonable accommodations to help you complete your work. Anything less is a violation of the law.
Caring, Insightful Representation
Because I have the experience of being a person of color and having a disability, I am well aware of how the world is often stacked against people. I go to great lengths to let my clients know I am there for them and will listen to their struggles and work with them to find a way forward.
