The Law in Missouri is Clear: Disability Discrimination is Illegal
Discrimination against an employee because of the employee’s disability is illegal in Missouri. Under both Missouri law and the American with Disabilities Act (ADA), employers are prohibited from discriminating against employees on the basis of the employee’s disability.
An employee or applicant with a disability is an individual who:
- has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity;
- is regarded as having such an impairment; or
- has a record of having such an impairment and with or without reasonable accommodation and can perform the essential functions of the job in question.
Employers have a duty to provide reasonable accommodations
Under Missouri law, if you have a disability, that with reasonable accommodation would not prevent you from doing your job, your employer has a duty to make a reasonable accommodation to the known disability of an applicant or employee to determine if a reasonable accommodation can be made available to you. If your employer fails to provide a reasonable accommodation, you may have a claim under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Missouri law.
A reasonable accommodation may include, but is not limited to:
- Making existing facilities used by employees readily accessible to and usable by persons with disabilities;
- Job restructuring, modifying work schedules, reassignment to a vacant position; or
- Acquiring or modifying equipment or devices, adjusting or modifying examinations, training materials, or policies and providing qualified readers or interpreters.
