Disabled Workers Are Protected By Law
California Employees with disabilities are protected by the strongest workplace anti-discrimination law in the United States: the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (the “FEHA”). The FEHA protects employees with physical disabilities as well as mental disabilities such as stress, anxiety, depression, or PTSD. An employer can require an employee with a disability to submit a note from a physician. Once a California employee notifies their employer about any disability, the FEHA requires the employer to immediately begin engaging with that employee in a “good faith, interactive process” to identify reasonable accommodations to allow the employee to continue working despite their disability.
Disability discrimination can sometimes be hard to identify. It is crucial that you speak with an experienced Disability Discrimination attorney immediately if you suspect that you are being targeted because of a disability. For example, employees with disabilities often face discrimination in job requirements, training, salary, benefits, promotions, or unfair discipline. Too often, employers simply manufacture false reasons to fire employees because they requested reasonable accommodations or reported injuries leading to disabilities. California employees with physical or mental disabilities have powerful protections under California and federal law, but those rights mean nothing unless they are asserted.
