disability discrimination

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, disability discrimination “occurs when a covered employer or other entity treats an applicant or employee less favourably because she has a history of a disability (such as cancer that is controlled or in remission) or because she is believed to have a physical or mental impairment that is not transitory (lasting or expected to last six months or less) and minor (even if she does not have such an impairment). The law requires an employer to provide reasonable accommodation to an employee or job applicant with a disability, unless doing so would cause significant difficulty or expense for the employer (‘undue hardship’).”
