Losing a job in Kentucky can be a difficult situation to face. For many workers, the sting of the job loss can be eased ever-so-slightly by the comfort that they are set to receive a severance package as they depart. However, there are circumstances where it is necessary to negotiate the severance agreement. The sides might not be on the same page when it comes to compensation and other benefits. Understanding what steps to take and the legal underpinnings of a severance agreement is vital to that end.
Disabled Kentuckians have the right to work just like those who are not disabled. However, even with greater attention paid to worker rights and fairness, disability discrimination continues to be a problem. Workers who are confronted with this type of mistreatment might have a vague notion of what constitutes disability discrimination, but are not completely sure the behavior meets the criteria. They are commonly constrained by a lack of knowledge about how it can be addressed. When this is of concern, having legal assistance is vital.
