If you are disabled, and your employer is unwilling to make reasonable accommodations, then you may have the right to recover compensation as part of a disability discrimination case. Along with Title I and Title V of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), the State and City of New York also offer some of the most progressive discrimination laws in the nation.
At the law office of Philip Taubman, in New York, we are experienced discrimination lawyers. We offer dependable legal counsel backed by personal service to people facing a wide range of workplace abuses and violations. We focus on getting results for our clients and are proud of our proven record of success.

Fighting FMLA and Disability Violations
While federal laws such as the ADA and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provide a foundation of expectation for how employees with disabilities or their families should be treated in the workplace, the laws of New York City in particular take that protection to the next level. There is a real expectation in the City of New York that people must make reasonable accommodations to the challenges that employees face.
Our attorneys will work with you to obtain either compensation or appropriate accommodation in discrimination cases involving:
- Firing or wrongful termination
- Access to or use of facilities
- Compensation and wages
- Breast feeding and pumping
We understand the challenges facing disabled people, and we take action to help you protect your rights whether you are facing physical disability, mental disability or pregnancy discrimination.
