Disabilities Under Florida Law
Both Florida and Federal law give individuals with disabilities protection from discrimination in the workplace. An equal opportunity for hiring and advancement opportunities in Tampa for persons with disabilities is afforded by these laws. Disability laws also require employers to include reasonable accomodations in order that disabled people may correctly perform their job.
Florida Employment for the Disabled
Discrimination against disabled individuals is illegal under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), whether the employer is the government or a private agency. An employer in Florida might not consider someone's disability when they make the decision to hire that person, their job assignments or whether they might advance in their position.
Besides treating them equally, Tampa employers must also provide disabled workers with any specific equipment required for work, according to reasonable costs. Additionally, the ADA makes it illegal to discriminate against persons based on their relationship to persons who have a disability requiring special needs.
