Many workers in Minnesota with disabilities are still able to perform a wide variety of jobs. They should not be discriminated against, be denied work opportunities or denied work altogether, just because they have a disability. Unfortunately, instances of discrimination occur on an all too frequent basis.
Employers might fire a worker because the worker needs to seek treatment for his or her disability. Employers may refuse to provide a disabled worker with a reasonable accommodation. Employers may not recognize that some disabilities are mental, not physical. These, and other acts of discrimination, are illegal, but that doesn't stop them from happening.
