Many companies place a great deal of importance in fairness and equality when hiring new employees. Unfairly and unjustly denying employment to an individual due to a disability is against the law, but unfortunately, those who use an external staffing service may have little say in the process. A staffing service in Florida has recently reached a settlement following a lawsuit alleging disability discrimination.
Many individuals in Florida and elsewhere consider employment to be an essential part of daily life. Should a person have trouble obtaining or retaining employment, he or she may suffer financial hardships that can be challenging to overcome. While in some cases, a person might not be qualified for a position, in others, discrimination could be a contributing factor, which is a serious issue, albeit one that might be difficult to prove.
Companies in Florida and various parts of the country often place a great deal of importance on image. Although maintaining a positive image can be beneficial in numerous areas of business, if these attempts lead to discrimination of any kind, victims of such acts might choose to pursue legal recourse. A man in another state has recently filed a lawsuit against his former employer accusing the company of age discrimination.
Countless individuals have been subjected to unfair and unjust treatment at work in relation to a medical disability. Businesses in Florida can require employees to possess the ability to perform work-related tasks. In some cases, however, a disabled individual who is fully capable of performing duties is still targeted or retaliated against by his or her employer. A woman in another state has recently filed a claim against her former employer in relation to alleged disability discrimination and retaliation.
