Individuals suffering from a physical or mental disability deserve equal employment opportunities. If a worker can do the job with or without a reasonable accommodation, they are entitled to equal treatment from their employer.
The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Illinois Human Rights Act (IHRA) both prohibit employment discrimination against individuals living with a disability (physical or mental). Under these statutes, employers must provide qualified employees with disabilities equal access to employment opportunities offered to others.
In broad terms, these laws provide that employers cannot treat an employee with a disability less favorably than others in terms of hiring, selection, promotion, training, transfer, pay, tenure, discipline, discharge, or other aspects of employment. Employers may also not harass or create a hostile work environment for individuals with disabilities.
