A person’s physical or mental disability, medical condition, or workplace injury may not be used as a reason to justify employment decisions. For example, in general, it is unlawful for an employer to refuse to hire or terminate you because you have a physical or mental disability or certain other medical conditions.
Employers must both engage in the interactive process and to make reasonable accommodations for an employee who is actually disabled or the employer regards as disabled. Beyond the workplace, people with disabilities are also entitled to equal access to public places such as housing, stores, and restaurants.
