Disabilities Under Mississippi Law

Under Mississippi and Federal laws, discriminating against individuals with disabilities is prohibited in the workplace. Disability laws afford disabled individuals in Meridian an equal opportunity to be hired and advance in their chosen professions. Disability laws also require employers to include reasonable accomodations in order that disabled people may correctly perform their job.

Mississippi 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. When making decisions regarding hiring, job assignment, or promotions, employers in Mississippi cannot consider a citizen's disability.

Besides treating them equally, Meridian employers must also provide disabled workers with any specific equipment required for work, according to reasonable costs. The act also prohibits discrimination against persons based on their relation to a person with a disability that poses special needs.
