Minnesota woman sues state agency for disability discrimination

The Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in many aspects of life, but some of the most important provisions of the ADA deal with employment. Under the ADA, employers generally cannot legally discriminate against disabled people while hiring, firing, training, promoting or paying employees.

Debate continues over Americans with Disabilities Act

The Americans with Disabilities Act provides wide-ranging protections to disabled people, but a big part of the impetus behind it was to prohibit employers from engaging in discriminatory practices against employees and would-be employees. It is supposed to protect employees from not being hired or being fired due to disability.

Minnesota moves to catch up with discrimination cases

A number of federal and Minnesota laws are designed to protect workers from discrimination at the workplace. Employment discrimination based on someone's race, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age or religion is generally against Minnesota law. Workers who have been discriminated against can rely on the law to remedy the problem. Unfortunately, however, the system doesn't always make it as easy as it should be.
