Disability Discrimination

Imagine the following scenario

You are a resident of the State of Idaho with a physical disability that limits your mobility. You have worked at a mid-sized Idaho company for many years. You were always treated fairly, with suitable accommodations for your disability. However, the company was recently purchased, and new management has been put in place. They are less friendly to you, and you fear that the accommodations that allowed you to work might be removed, leaving you unable to perform your job and placing your much-needed employment at risk. For the first time in your working career, you feel that you might lose your job. You are worried and need counsel on what you should do.

If the above scenario sounds familiar, your next move should be to contact a law firm that focuses on disability discrimination law in the workplace. Fortunately, such a firm exists in Boise, Idaho Employment Law Solutions. Led by Lieutenant Colonel USMC (Ret.) R.A. (Ron) Coulter, Esq., our firm, specializes in these corresponding fields of the law. For a small initial consultation fee, the firm will help determine whether you may have a potential disability discrimination claim.


The ADA is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination based on disability in employment, public accommodations, State and local governments, schools, and commercial facilities. The ADA was designed to aid qualified people with physical or mental disabilities and give them the same benefits and opportunities available to individuals who have no disabilities. It protects disabled people similar in scope to the protections provided by previously enacted civil rights laws that prohibited discrimination based on race, skin color, national origin, religion, and sex.

According to the ADA, private employers with 15 or more employees must give individuals with disabilities the same employment opportunities and benefits that they would give to employees without disabilities. The law requires the employer to provide reasonable accommodations to job applicants or employees, so long as such accommodations do not create an undue hardship or significant expense to the employer. If more than one accommodation is available, the employer can select the one to be given.

The law requires the job applicant or employee to have the requisite qualifications to do the job and to be able to perform the essential requirements of it.

The law also places limitations on questions regarding disabilities that an employer can pose to a prospective employee.

I was involved in an administrative procedure which could have ultimately led to my termination of employment. I contacted Idaho Employment Law Solutions which is owned and operated by Ron Coulter, a career U.S. Marine Corps Officer. The qualities that impressed me most about Ron, was that nothing was “sugar coated”, Ron was up-front, straight forward, and Ron told me what to expect at each phase of the administrative process. When I asked a question, Ron always took care to provide a complete answer which very often included a follow-up legal analysis that a lay person could understand. Ron is an outstanding and experienced employment law attorney. He was reassuring and effective in his representation of me in this administrative procedure. There is no doubt, that the selection of Idaho Employment Law Solutions was the correct choice
