In Massachusetts, the Massachusetts Office of Disability may be useful to persons with disabilities trying to learn more about their rights. Their website is below:
Please also consider my office a resource for disabled workers who were fired from their job, or forced out due to a lack of reasonable accomodation.
The basic tenets of employment disability law is the employee must be able to work with a reasonable accomodation. Accomodations are reasonable if they do not present an undue hardship to the employer. Marginal costs of accomodation are not undue hardships. If employees need time off due to their disability they need to provide an expected return date within reason. Employers do not have to hold jobs open forever, or for unspecified times that are not likely to be specified within a reasonable period of time. Employees must provide a reasonable amount of information about their disability in order to be accomodated. Employees who hide their disabilities cannot expect to be accomodated.
Please contact me at 1-877-525-0700 if you were fired or forced to quit due to a disability your employer should have accomodated.
