Looking for legal assistance with disability discrimination in the workplace?
We provide legal representation for employees across California to protect their rights and seek justice when they have faced discrimination in the workplace due to a disability.
California has a number of laws in place to protect employees who have disabilities or medical conditions from discrimination in the workplace. These laws prohibit employers from denying employment opportunities and benefits to qualified individuals based on their disability status, as well as punishing or harassing workers who may be perceived as having a disability.
Some of the key laws in this area include the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
The FEHA protects against discrimination based on disability by private employers, state and local public agencies, employment agencies, and labor organizations.
The ADA prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities in all areas of public life, including employment, transportation, and all access to state and local government programs and services.
If you feel that you have been discriminated against at work due to a disability or medical condition, it is important to reach out for legal advice as soon as possible.

Workplace Reasonable Accommodations
Disabled employees have the right to reasonable accommodations to perform their work.
Workplace reasonable accommodations are designed to help employees with disabilities or serious medical conditions maintain their ability to work and thrive in the workplace. These accommodations can include things like flexible hours, working from home, reduced workloads, modifications to equipment or office space, and more.
Frequently Asked Questions
A reasonable accommodation for disability in the workplace may include things like reduced hours, working from home, taking a leave of absence, or using an ergonomic chair or keyboard. In order to determine what constitutes a reasonable accommodation, it is necessary to engage in good faith discussions with your employer and assess whether the proposed accommodation would cause undue hardship for your employer.
To request a reasonable accommodation for disability in the workplace, you should first consult with your employer to discuss your needs and any potential accommodations that may be appropriate. This process may involve negotiating with your employer to find an agreeable solution that meets both your needs and the needs of your employer.
Under the FEHA, employers in California must provide reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities, unless doing so would cause undue hardship for the company. This includes providing reasonable accommodations such as flexible hours, working from home, and more. If you feel that your employer is violating your rights under the FEHA with regard to reasonable accommodations for disability, you may wish to consult with an employment attorney to learn about your legal options.
The definition of a disability under state and federal law can vary depending on the nature of your condition. To determine whether your condition meets the legal definition of a disability, you may wish to consult with an attorney who specializes in employment law, or review any relevant documentation related to your condition such as medical records or test results. In general, if your condition limits a major life activity or significantly impairs your ability to function in the workplace, it may be considered a disability under state or federal law. However, it is important to seek legal advice in order to fully understand your rights and obligations under the law.
If your employer refuses to provide a reasonable accommodation for disability in the workplace, you may wish to consult with an attorney to discuss your legal options. Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to file a complaint with the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing or pursue legal action against your employer in order to obtain the reasonable accommodation that you need. Additionally, if you believe that your employer is discriminating against you based on your disability, an attorney can help you understand your rights and options under state and federal anti-discrimination laws.
