Although the officer received praise for his detective work, he says he was ridiculed and unlawfully terminated in violation of the ADA, reports LA employment lawyer Eric Grover. The deputy was on doctor approved medical leave, but was still terminated for being unable to perform his duties. He alleges that he was placed in a position “most incompatible with his disability,” in violation of federal labor laws requiring accommodation. He believes that his termination was retaliatory.

A police officer with a stutter was subjected to discrimination and to ridicule and harassment resulting in a hostile work environment, according to a lawsuit filed by the officer that also alleges violations of the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Family Medical Leave Act. Officer Ken Parson has had a stutter since childhood, but it wasn’t readily noticeable when he was hired as a road patrol officer in Monroe in southwest Ohio in 2001, according to the lawsuit filed earlier this month.
