Philadelphia Disability Lawyers Report on Bryn Mawr Hospital Alleged Disability Discrimination   

September 21st, 2015

A Philadelphia man and long term employee of Bryn Mawr Hospital is suing the facility alleging that he is the victim of disability discrimination.  A sterile processing and distribution technician since 1975, the employee hurt his shoulder on the job while pushing a cart.  According to the plaintiff, the injury did not deem him incapable of performing the essential parts of his job.

Under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA), the worker took leave in order to have surgery on his shoulder.  After his recovery began, he attempted to return to work in a light capacity, but Bryn Mawr administrators claimed his restrictions were too much and that he needed to return the following week after the doctor removed his restrictions. He complied, but upon his return was told his position was no longer available.  The employee asserts he was informed that he had the opportunity to apply for other jobs, but he was not hired.

The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 states that employees with disabilities must receive accommodations unless it can be proven that it would cause the employer undue hardship.  The ADA defines undue hardship as an action that would result in extreme difficulty or expense for employers.  Once an employee requests an accommodation under the ADA, the employer should meet with the employee to determine what he or she may need and how they will implement those accommodations.

If you or a loved one has a disability that requires a reasonable accommodation in order to complete your job, it is important to be familiar with all aspects of the ADA by seeking representation from an experienced Philadelphia disability lawyer.
