Disabilities Under North Carolina Law

Working Americans with disabilities are protected from discrimination under both federal and North Carolina law. It is illegal to discriminate against a person who belongs to a protected class, such as those with disabilities, and employers who do so face serious consequences. Disability laws require employers to make reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities, and if an employer fails to make a reasonable accommodation, they may be held liable.

What Disability Rights Groups work in Fayetteville?

There are numerous government agencies that deal with advocacy and disability rights in North Carolina. These groups work around the clock to help maintain, if not raise the quality of life for people with disabilities.

Although their main headquarters are found in the state's capital of Raleigh, there are also satellite offices and hotlines that can be easily accessed by persons with disabilities anytime, just like in Fayetteville, NC.

Some of the agencies or groups that can provide comprehensive support are: the NC Department of Health and Human Services, North Carolina Statewide Independent Living, Disability Advocates Group of Fayetteville, NC, and Fayetteville-Cumberland Advisory Council for People with Disabilities, among others.

Disability rights groups can assist individuals with Medicaid concerns, provide home health and home care services, nursing aide services, and access to community resources. These organizations are able to address distinctive needs of individuals with different types and levels of disabilities. Whether the disability is physical, mental, intellectual, or developmental, there is always help if you know where to look.

These advocates can also provide assistance to those who wish to seek housing, and legal assistance for those who are in need of guidance. The most important is providing training for persons with disabilities to cope during crisis, and to develop skills in order to promote self-reliance and transition from home, to school, and work as an independent individual, when possible.

North Carolina Employment for the Disabled

Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers cannot use a person's disability as a basis for any decisions regarding employment. In North Carolina, this means that employers cannot decide to hire or terminate a person based on their disability, and they cannot use the disability in the decision making process for job positions, or for advancement opportunities.
