Equal Rights for Workers With Disabilities
If you are a disabled employee or applicant, the law may protect you against denied equal employment opportunities or a failure to provide reasonable work accommodations based on your disability.
I am lawyer Alan Adelman, a San Francisco employment law attorney with 18 years of experience. Throughout virtually my entire legal career, I have focused exclusively on employees' rights in the San Francisco Bay Area. My dedicated focus on securing employees' rights has enabled me to stay up to date with the changing laws, while providing the focused, passionate representation that you need and deserve. If you have reasons to believe you were discriminated against, contact me to discuss whether you might have a disability discrimination case.
What You Need to Know About Disability Discrimination
Disability discrimination arises in many different contexts:
- The employer doesn't hire you because of your disability.
- The employer limits your advancement because of your disability.
- The employer refuses to provide you with the reasonable accommodations you need to do your job.
- The employer retaliates against you for demanding your rights, sometimes leading to wrongful termination.
At the Law Offices of Alan Adelman, I have litigated numerous cases where the employee requests the reasonable accommodations needed to work, and the employer then retaliates by creating a hostile work environment or by disciplining or firing the employee. This territory is familiar to me, and I know how to fight for your rights.
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) have been established to protect you from this type of discrimination. Under the FEHA, if you have a mental or physical condition, which limits your ability to engage in a major life activity, you may have a protected disability. If an employer refuses to hire you, otherwise limits your advancement at work, or refuses to provide you with the reasonable accommodations that you need, it may constitute unlawful discrimination.
Employers are often required to provide you with the reasonable accommodations you need to do your job. If they don't provide this, you might have a disability discrimination claim.
