Disability Rights in Florida

Since 1990, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) has protected the specific legal rights of those living with handicaps and disabilities. The ADA prohibits discrimination against these individuals, ensuring they are given the same opportunities as all other Americans in the areas of employment, public accommodations, transportation, and housing.

Those who are protected under the ADA include but are not limited to:

  • The hearing impaired
  • The visually impaired
  • Those with mobility impairment
  • Those with learning disabilities
  • Those with special conditions or illnesses, such as cancer or pregnancy, that call for specialized consideration

All public entities must adhere to the ADA for disabled individuals in their services and programs. This extends to educational institutions, businesses, and government services.

The state of Florida also has the Florida Civil Rights Act. This act also prohibits discriminatory employment practices against the disabled.

Additional anti-discrimination laws in Florida include:

  • Public Employment Discrimination Law - Prohibits employment discrimination in municipal and county jobs
  • Vocational Rehabilitation Law - Prohibits discrimination by public employers against disabled workers who use a service animal

If you have been denied access to such services, programs, or employment, you may have a valid ADA violation claim. You may be entitled to compensatory damages, punitive damages, and legal fees. If you are a business seeking disability rights legal counsel, our disability lawyers can guide you so that you are legally compliant.
