Hello again, Nick, and thank you for providing this additional information.
The federal American's with Disabilities Act (ADA
) does typically prohibit employers from discriminating against employees because of their disability. This statute also requires that employers provide a reasonable accommodation which is not an undue hardship and which permits the employee to perform the tasks of their job.
However, it does not typically require that an employer reassign an employee due to their disability I'm afraid, but only accommodate them in the position they have been assigned to.
If you can produce evidence though that, if you were not disabled, the employer would have reassigned you to your previous position or some other job which you could satisfactorily perform, that would typically provide a basis to pursue a charge of employment discrimination
If that is the case, then it would be best to retain a local employment law
attorney to represent you in pursuing that claim, seeking either damages or reassignment. The first step would normally involve filing a complaint internally with the employer's HR department and if the situation is not promptly resolved, a charge of discrimination can be filed with the EEOC
