Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Claims Defense - St. Louis MO

An employee is entitled to disability protection only if the medical condition at issue qualifies as a disability. Disability discrimination law is contained within Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA) and covers the job application process, hiring, firing, promotions, demotions, compensations, and other events related to the employee-employer relationship. In order for an employee to have a cause of action under the ADA he or she must have a qualified disability. A person has a disability if he or she (1) has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; (2) has a record of such impairment; or (3) is regarded as having such an impairment.

If the individual is determined to have a disability, it must then be established that the individual is qualified for protection under the ADA. The individual is qualified if he or she, with or without reasonable accommodation, can perform the essential functions of the job in question.

Both of these standards have been subject to a large amount of litigation and case law and involve a very fact intensive and complex analysis to determine if the individual is protected by the ADA. The Law Offices of Kevin J. Dolley provides cost-effective and experienced legal counsel for Missouri companies and businesses involved in disability discrimination litigation.

Disability Defense and Reasonable Accommodations - St. Louis

If providing a reasonable accommodation to a disabled individual would impose an "undue hardship" on the employer, the employer is not required to undertake such an expense or burden. An undue hardship is defined within the ADA as an action requiring significant difficulty or expense in light of various factors such as the following:

  • the nature and cost of the requested accommodation;
  • the overall financial resources of the business; the number of overall employees; and the impact of the request on the employer;
  • the type of business the employer is engaged and the administrative and financial burden of the request and the reasonableness of the request at issue.
