Disabilities Under Connecticut Law

Both Connecticut and Federal law give individuals with disabilities protection against discrimination in the workplace. The various laws ensure that disabled individuals in Bristol have an equal opportunity to get hired and obtain promotions in their choice of field. Disability laws make it mandatory for employers to reasonably accommodate individuals with disabilities so that they can perform their jobs.

Connecticut Employment for the Disabled

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) makes discrimination against the disabled illegal, whether it be in a government agency or a private setting. An employer in Connecticut may not consider someone's disability when they make the decision to hire that person, their job assignments or whether they may advance in their position.

Besides treating them equally, Bristol employers must also provide disabled workers with any specific equipment needed for work, according to reasonable costs. Additionally, the ADA makes it illegal to discriminate against someone based on their relationship to persons who have a disability requiring special needs.

You're probably familiar with Bristol because it is the headquarters to ESPN. This Hartford County city is 20 miles Southwest of the City of Hartford making it very popular among professionals seeking a more suburban environment. Many of those professionals are lawyers. Lawyers in Bristol take all kinds of cases and advise their clients on the best courses of action for their cases in Connecticut. Bristol has earned a number of different nicknames over the years. It was known as Clock City in the 1800s because it primarily manufactured timepieces; today you may visit the American Clock and Watch Museum in Bristol.
