Workplace Injuries and Disability Discrimination

Workers’ compensation coverage does not automatically establish that a person is protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act or the Fair Employment and Housing Act.

Moreover, workers’ compensation and disability laws impose different obligations on employers. An employer should not assume that just because it complied with workers’ compensation laws, the employer also met its obligations under disability laws. For more information, see Workers’ Compensation.​
