Los Angeles Disability Discrimination Attorneys

Protecting the Rights of Workers Covered by Disability Laws

In California, employees with disabilities are protected by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), which protects employees from discrimination, harassment, and retaliation. At Feldman Browne Olivares, our disability discrimination lawyers in Los Angeles provide aggressive representation of employees who have experienced discrimination at work.

Call (310) 984-1415 or contact us online to discuss your situation with a lawyer.

Time Off for Medical Leave

If an employee with an ADA or FEHA protected disability requires time off or a medical leave of absence, the employer may be required to provide time off under California law. Additional medical leave time is considered a reasonable accommodation, even if the employee has already used the 12 weeks of leave under the Family Medical Leave Act or California’s Family Right’s Act.

Reasonable Accommodations in the Workplace

Employees with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations under federal and California state law. An employer may be held liable for failing to provide an accommodation that would enable the employee to perform essential job functions, unless the employer can prove that the accommodation presents an undue hardship to business operations.

Some examples of reasonable accommodations may include:

  • Medical leave
  • Extension of a medical leave
  • Modified equipment or devices
  • Modified work schedule
  • Reassigning to an available position
  • Allowing the employee to work from home
  • Providing interpreters
  • An accessible workspace

An employer may be in violation of the law for failing to accommodate for a disability, refusing to hire someone with a disability, firing an employee for requesting accommodations, or failing to engage in the interactive process.
