Disability Discrimination

Did your employer discriminate against, harass, or terminate you without cause just because you are disabled?

Two sets of laws protect victims of disability discrimination in California – the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”), and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”). Not only does the ADA prohibit such discrimination, it also requires that employers make the workplace accessible to disabled employees. In other words, they must make “reasonable accommodations” for you. The ADA applies to employers whose work affects commerce and employs 15 or more employees. FEHA applies to employers with 5 or more employees and offers more extensive protection than the ADA.
