Expert Q&A

Are there any disability employment laws that can prevent my wife from losing her job?

My wife was diagnosed with ADD when she was in high school. She is now an administrative assistant to our County Tax Commissioner. She has been doing this job for the past 6 years. Her boss has started to write her up for everything over the last year and a half. She was informed yesterday that she was being let go. Is ADD covered under any of the mental disability employment laws that may protect her from termination?

Thank you.

It would be best for an individual facing possible employment discrimination or termination based on possible disability to immediately seek consultation from an experienced lawyer representing people in employment discrimination cases. For a general introduction to some of the rules governing employment discrimination, including potential discrimination on the basis of disability, see the web site of the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
