It is very important here in Houston and throughout the country that disabled people are given a fair chance in the workplace. People with disabilities have the right to work in an environment free from discrimination as well as be provided with reasonable accommodations. Reasonable accommodations might include adjusted working hours, a certain type of workspace or chair, or specific break or lunch times, among other things.
Workers in Texas and throughout the country have the right to file discrimination and sexual harassment complaints against their employers. Even if the complaint is eventually dismissed by whomever is asked to investigate it, the worker who filed the complaint cannot be disciplined for doing so. In fact, retaliating against employees for complaining about discrimination in the workplace violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
