California Disability Discrimination Lawyers

Southern California Disability Rights Attorneys

Federal laws, such as the Americans with Disabilities Act, prohibit employees from being discriminated against solely on the basis of a physical or mental disability. If you are able to perform the basic functions of a job, and have been harassed or discriminated against by your employer or potential employer because of your disability, you are the victim of disability discrimination. If you have a physical or mental disability, and have been discriminated against by an employer, please contact a California disability discrimination attorney at the Law Offices of Terry Davis.

The Americans with Disabilities Act Title I states that it is illegal to discriminate against a person because of a disability in regards to hiring, promotions, work training, wages, and work related privileges. In addition, Title I of the Americans with Disabilities Act states that potential employers may not inquire about a person's disability before the individual is hired, in an attempt to prevent the applicant from being discriminated against because of his or her disability. If requested, employers may provide employees who have disabilities with adequate accommodations to the actual work space or the job itself, which may include:

  • Altering work policies
  • Different office furniture (chair, desk, etc.)
  • Handrails
  • Individualized work schedule
  • Modification of equipment or work related devices
  • Personal assistants, such as a sign language translator for an employee who is deaf
  • Transferring employee to a different location
  • Use of assistive equipment and technology
  • Wheel chair ramp

Laws regarding accommodations in the workplace do not apply to all employers and companies, only those with fifteen or more employees must comply with the laws, although each case is individually assessed to determine if the accommodations will be made. Companies that are required to make accommodations need only make "reasonable" accommodations, meaning that a very expensive accommodation may be denied if it will cause undue hardship on the company. If you feel that you have been discriminated against in your place of work due to your disability, you may be able to file a disability discrimination claim against your employer and sue for monetary compensation.

If you or a loved one has been the victim of disability discrimination in the workplace, please contact a California disability discrimination lawyer today at the Law Offices of Terry Davis.
