Unlawful discrimination in any form can cloud your workplace with hostility and impair your ability to do your job comfortably and competently. Although state and federal laws take a strong stance against employment discrimination, discriminatory conduct on the part of employers and other employees still persists.

- Physical or mental disability
- Sex, gender identity or sexual orientation (including all forms of sexual harassment)

If you have a disability — or if you have sustained an injury that results in a disability — you have important rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act. This important federal law requires most employers to make reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. For example, your employer may be legally required to restructure your work schedule, modify your work equipment, provide facilities or technology, or make other accommodations that will help you perform your essential job functions.
ADA violations can be a gray area, as much will depend on your specific circumstances. There is no black-and-white formula for balancing business needs against requested disability accommodations. For these reasons, professional legal analysis is all the more important if you think you were wrongfully denied reasonable accommodations or suffered other forms of work-related disability discrimination.
Iowa Discriminatory Action And Retaliatory Discharge Lawyer
Discrimination can happen in many ways. The most harmful and obvious way is if you lost your job for discriminatory reasons. Likewise, if you were fired because you took a stance against unlawful discrimination, you may have a claim for retaliatory discharge.
Other forms of discrimination include differential treatment, harassment, a hostile work environment, demotions, lack of promotional opportunities and other adverse employment action.
