Thank you for trusting your question to JA today. I am a licensed attorney with over a decade of law practice and over 20 years of experience in the legal field. I’m happy to be of assistance.

The ADA protects against discrimination based on disability, but that is not the same thing as saying that employees cannot mention disabilities and any effect they may be having on your work performance. Those issues can absolutely be raised if they are causing workplace concerns.

If employees were just making fun of your disability, I could see filing a labor complaint. But on these facts, i'm not really convinced that you have a claim.

If you have any further questions or other facts that you would like me to consider, please let me know. I invite follow up questions, so use REPLY for those. If you have no further questions then good luck going forward and please do not forget to rate my service with a three, a four or preferably a five star rating so that I receive credit for working with you today. Please rate me based on my service and not on your satisfaction with the law, which I am not in control of and I am just reporting to you. Also, feel free to request me in the future, if you have questions concerning a different matter.
