Philadelphia Employment Law attorneys of Sidney L. Gold & Associates Take on New Discrimination Challenges

October 31st, 2011

October 31, 2011 – The Philadelphia law firm of Sidney L. Gold & Associates is now representing disabled students who have been subjected to discrimination on the basis of their disabilities, or who have been denied accommodations for their disabilities, in violation of the Rehabilitation Act and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act. Recently, the firm’s discrimination lawyers successfully represented an applicant for enrollment in a graduate student physical therapy program who was denied admission because she suffers from Spina Bifida. The university denied her admission based on an erroneous perception that she would be unable to meet the performance requirements because she uses crutches to walk.

Our lawyers are also currently representing a medical student, suffering from a disability, who was given a failing grade based on an erroneous perception that he was a drug addict due to the effects of medication he took to treat his disability.  That claim is presently pending with the United States Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights.

If you believe that you been a victim of disability discrimination by your school, or if your school has failed to provide you with the appropriate accommodations for your disability, contact the Philadelphia disability discrimination attorneys at Sidney L. Gold & Associates.  We are available to review the facts of her case and to determine if you have a valid claim against your school for violation of the federal, state or local discrimination laws or the Rehabilitation Act and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act.
