13 protected grounds of discrimination
7. Physical disability
People cannot discriminate against you because of your physical disabilities.
There are many kinds of physical disabilities. For example:
- Ed was born with cerebral palsy. He uses a wheelchair.
- Ty hurt his knee in an accident. He can’t bend his knee very much.
- Gita has diabetes. She checks her blood sugar often. She has a special diet.
I am blind. I can’t see. I use a guide dog. One day, I went to a restaurant. The server said, “You can’t bring your dog in here.”
I know that guide dogs can go into restaurants. I think I was discriminated against because of my disability.
