Is it ever acceptable for an employer to consider someone's disability during the hiring process?. Solomon Krevsky, Clark & Krevsky LLC, 20 Erford Rd., Suite 300A, Lemoyne PA 17043, 717-731-8600, http://www.clark-krevskylaw.com/.
The Americans with Disabilities Act states that it will be unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a qualified individual with a disability. In connection with the hiring process, an employer may come to learn the existence of a medical impairment or disability. If the medical impairment or disability disqualifies the employee from performing the essential functions of the job, that employee can be disqualified as a candidate. However, the employer is required to consider reasonable accommodations that may allow the employee to perform the essential functions of the job and, thus, be deemed a qualified individual with a disability under the ADA.
