If you feel that you are being (or have been) discriminated against here’s some basic Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) back ground information and easy no cost steps to protect you and help get the ADA accommodations your deserve.
Although I find the recent enhancement to the ADA encouraging I’m still of the opinion that the ADA is written by Big business for Big Business and you have to fight for your rights.
One of the biggest problems with the ADA is ADA attorney’s are typically only interested in ADA cases that they can really cash in on. The result is its often difficult for those that have been discriminated against to get justice.
Here is some criteria for an ADA case that would entice an Attorney..
> Case against company that has lots of money and could be a nice fat settlement,
> The company has A reputation they are concerned about protecting,
> The company is a repeat offenders,
> The case is news worthy.
Of course a combination of all would be best. But unless you have a case that meets some or all of this criteria or you can buck up allot of cash for the ADA attorney my hunch is that legal action is likely not the best option.
Regardless if you case meets the Attractive ADA criteria for an attorney her are 3 simple steps to take to help you find out if you even have a case and how far you can go on your own.
1. Check out the statute of limitations
First is understand what the statute of limitations is in your state. It typically dates back to the date of the last incident and should be between 12 – 18 months.
If the date of last incident falls into this time frame than prepare a written description of the event’s.
2. Learn if you have a case
Contact these agencies below and explaining your situation and ask if they feel you have a case? If at least 2 out of 3 say yes you should file and EEOC complaint.
