I am currently doing a fine job at what I do (even working with an advancing disability which affects my mobility). I've been told I'm going to be asked to move to a new location, within the building, and the location isn't going to allow me to do my job, as well, or maybe not even be able to do my job adequately. I would like have someone: an attorney who's familiar with Americans with Disabilities Act or someone who can determine if I have any recourse to prevent me being moved to a new location because I may not be able to do my job in the manner I am used to doing it. Can you direct me to a place (someone/organization) to help me file a claim under the ADA?
