So now that I am disabled how will I ever work again?

New Jersey has a series of employment laws that may help you in dealing with workplace injuries. If an employer discriminates against you because of your disability call our firm, we will explain what rights you may have under the Americans with Disabilities Act or Laws Against Discrimination. These laws can provide for reasonable accommodation of your disability, in order to allow your continued employment. To put it in perspective let’s say you have suffered a back injury: if the job could be restructured so that you could take sitting breaks that would allow you to still do your work, this would be a type of reasonable accommodation. An employer may need to provide such a reasonable accommodation. Accommodations may include modifying the workplace to make it readily accessible to your disability, modifying your work schedule or reassigning you to a vacant position which you are qualified for.
