7.11 What resources can beneficiaries turn to when employers discriminate against people with disabilities?

Most employers are simply looking for qualified workers, regardless of whether they have disabilities or not. However, whether through ignorance or improper behavior, employment discrimination does occur. The Americans with Disabilities Act, expressly forbids unjust discrimination and provides remedies to people who believe they have been discriminated against. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission accepts complaints from workers and will investigate, and if warranted, ensure that steps are taken to remove the discrimination and ensure the employer adequately compensates the worker for anything due.
