Rehabilitation Act

The Rehabilitation Act makes most forms of discrimination against disabled persons illegal. A Montgomery County discrimination lawyer can help you.

The Rehabilitation Act makes it illegal for any person(s) with disabilities being denied access to federal grants or programs due to their disability. What this means is that a person cannot be discriminated against due to his or her disability, by any activity or program that receives federal funding. This includes the United States Postal Service, and many other programs.

If you believe that you have been discriminated against by a program or activity that receives federal funding solely due to your disability, it is essential that you contact an experienced attorney as quickly as possible. While you may be able to lodge a complaint with the Department of Labor, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, or the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs for administrative action, this process is often lengthy and complex without the assistance of an attorney. You may not be able to fully advocate for your rights on your own without an attorney present to educate you regarding complicated legal processes or to communicate with government agencies on your behalf.
