Employment Litigation

Disability Discrimination

Trusted Employment Lawyer in California

We represent individuals with physical or mental disabilities who were discriminated against or harassed by their employer on the basis of their disability.

It is illegal for an employer to retaliate against an employee because of the employee’s disability or accommodation request.  If you have a disability that causes you to need work limitations, your employer has a duty to engage in a good faith, interactive process with you to determine what reasonable accommodations the employer can provide in order for you to maintain your employment.

If your employer has retaliated against you or terminated you because of your disability or accommodation request, or if your employer has refused to engage in an interactive process with you and has refused to provide you with reasonable accommodations, you may have disability discrimination claims against your employer.

A reasonable accommodation can even be in the form of a medical leave of absence.  If your employer terminated you while you were on medical leave, you may have failure to accommodate and disability discrimination claims against your employer.
