Disability Discrimination: Man Claims He Was Secretly Fired After Getting Medical Leave

Disability Discrimination is unlawful.  If you have been fired, suspended or otherwise treated poorly at work because of your disability you should seek legal counsel.

Berlingieri Law, PLLC, represents individuals with disabilities.  Individuals who have faced discrimination or have been treated differently because their disability should consult with an employment attorney to better understand their rights.

After a large Florida based marketing company fired a disabled amputee for taking disability leave Berlingieri Law, PLLC brought a lawsuit in State Superior Court in Bridgeport, Connecticut on his behalf.  Instead of litigating the case in Superior Court the Florida based Marketing Company filed a motion to remove the case to the United States District Court for the District of Connecticut.  The case was removed to the federal District Court in Bridgeport.
