Philadelphia Disability Discrimination Lawyers: Discrimination Against Former Cancer Sufferers

May 2nd, 2017

Philadelphia Disability Discrimination Lawyers reveal Discrimination Against Former Cancer SufferersIt was recently discovered that amendments made to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) in 2009 have not put a stop to workplace discrimination against employees with a history of cancer. The landmark law, which was originally passed in 1990, offered protection for Americans victimized by disability-based discrimination in the workplace. It later came to light, however, that the law did not cover employees after their cancer went into remission. So, those experiencing discrimination due of the effects of their previous illness could not file a complaint.

Despite the protections that have been put in place, many cancer survivors continue to suffer both obvious and subtle forms of employment discrimination. This may include:

  • Being turned down for new positions when qualified
  • Not receiving an earned promotion
  • Lack of flexibility for scheduling follow-up doctor appointments
  • Being demoted without a legitimate reason
