You have worked to provide for yourself and your family. You have done your job because you take pride in earning fair pay for your work, regardless of your disability.
If you suspect that your employer has discriminated against you because of a disability, or if your employer is refusing to grant you a reasonable accommodation in your job, know that the law is on your side. It is easy to feel like the law is rigged against honest, hardworking people, but in the area of labor and employment law, nothing could be further than the truth — especially in California.
Our firm has a team of experienced attorneys and staff that takes pride in helping workers throughout Southern California stand up to employers who engage in illegal discrimination. If you have been the victim of discrimination at work, we want to help you.
Have You Been Discriminated Against In A Job Application? Has Your Employer Failed To Accommodate Your Disability? You May Have A Legal Claim.
Laws like the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) are designed to eliminate discrimination in job hiring and other employment decisions based on disability or perceived disability. For example, the law makes it illegal for employers to:
- Discriminate against disabled job applicants when making hiring decisions
- Inquire about disabilities or the severity of disabilities (employers can ask whether employees can perform essential job functions)
- Refuse to provide a reasonable accommodation to an applicant for a job application, or to an employee in order to perform the essential functions of a job
Employers who violate these laws can be held accountable by administrative claims or even private lawsuits. We can evaluate your options and take the steps necessary to ensure that your employer (or potential employer) is not allowed to get away with illegal discrimination.
