A survivor of domestic abuse, sexual assault or stalking may have physical and emotional disabilities caused by the abuse. Employers cannot discriminate against you if you have certain disabilities. This guide provides basic information about your right to protection against discrimination. It also tells you about your right to ask for changes in your workload, hours or space that are necessary because of your disability.
