Legal news reports that a federal discrimination lawsuit has just been filed against FedEx. The Americans with Disabilities Act claim asserts that FedEx discriminated against a large class of deaf and hard of hearing package handlers and job applicants for many years. Among the allegations include claims that the company failed to provide the workers necessary accommodations to perform their job.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA) protect certain “qualified” individuals from discrimination in the terms and conditions of your employment. The ADA/ADAAA also protects you from disability harassment or retaliation for complaining about disability discrimination or participating in another person’s disability claim.
