More Disability Discrimination Claims Filed In 2012 Than Ever Before

In 2011, more complaints of disability-related job discrimination were filed than any other year in history.

According to the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agency received 26,379 claims of job bias citing disability issues in 2012, an increase from the 25,742 filed in 2011.

It unlawful for disabled Americans to be discriminated against in the workplace.

If a person wants to qualify for benefits through the Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) program, a determination for eligibility is largely based on his or her work history.

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has two different gauges by which to evaluate your work history. The first of these is called the “Duration of Work Test”, while the second is called the “Recent Work Test”. These tests take into account how long you have worked, and how recently, to determine if you qualify for benefits.

If you have questions about an application for disability benefits, do not hesitate to contact our Tulsa Social Security disability lawyers for a free consultation. You may also reach us by phone at (918) 265-1404.

    I didn't think there was a caring professional considerate attorney firm on the planet, but Troutman & Troutman proved me wrong. From the receptionist to the legal assistance to the attorney and more they were exceptional people.

    They did a fantastic job getting everything gathered up and getting the trial done as quickly as possible. Anytime I had a question they were patient and help me understand what was going on. Especially Christy and Charlie were great.

    Steve Troutman was able to get my short-term and long-term disability for me. Then Erin another lawyer for their firm got my Social security disability for me. Great people.

    Mr. Troutman walked me through the entire process. Heather was available each time I called, answered all my crazy questions, and helped me fill out forms along the way. I was never treated like I was wasting time.
