Philadelphia ADA Attorneys
Ensuring You Obtain Disability Accomodation
As an employee, not only do you have the right to be free of discrimination on the job, but you also have the right to an accommodation for your disability. If your employer refuses to provide you with a reasonable accommodation, they are violating your federal and state rights. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) offer protection to workers with an impairment that significantly limits a “major life activity” (e.g., walking, standing, sitting, seeing, or hearing).
If you’ve been discriminated against in the office or wrongfully terminated because you requested a workplace accommodation, our legal team at Weisberg Law will protect your rights and best interests in order to restore your career and reputation. We represent employees who experienced workplace bias because of their disability. Let us help you obtain the result and justice you deserve.

About the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)
Enacted in 1990, the ADA specifically prohibits discrimination based on disability in the workplace, state and local government activity, commercial facilities, telecommunications like websites, as well as public accommodations run by private entities. These places are required to maintain specific accessibility features to allow disabled individuals an equal opportunity to use and enjoy the facilities.
Common examples of reasonable disability accommodations in the workplace include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Allow a flexible your work schedule
- Modify or restructure your job duties
- Changing or moving your work area
- Reassigning you to another job
- Providing mechanical or electrical aids
- Making the existing facilities more readily accessible to and useable by employees with disabilities
- Allowing you to work remotely
- Allowing to bring an emotional support or service animal to work
Reasonable public accommodations include installing a ramp into a building, lowering the entryway for certain units, installing grab bars in a bathroom, and provide a reserved parking space for individuals with disabilities. Common examples of public accommodations are hotels and motels, restaurants and bars, healthcare providers, academic institutions, sports facilities, retail stores and malls, wineries, and apartment complexes.
