Disability Employment Discrimination Project

The project provides limited legal representation, legal advice and know-your-rights education to low-income people with disabilities, as well as education and outreach to employers. We will accept a small number of targeted cases that have the potential to remedy systemic discrimination, make significant advances in the law or otherwise breaks down barriers to employment for individuals with disabilities.

We provide free educational materials and presentations on employment rights under the ADA. Please email cdepalma@pubintlaw.org or 215-627-7100 ex. 233 if you would like information on disability employment rights, or if you have a group that would like to learn about disability employment rights.
