Sacramento Area Lawyer for Disability Discrimination in Employment

Millions of Americans face the difficulty of overcoming their disabilities every day of their lives. They must build their personal relationships and professional careers despite the physical or mental challenges they face. In recognition of the effort this takes, federal and state laws offer protections for employees with disabilities.

These laws - like the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) - prevent discrimination against workers with medical conditions and disabilities in all aspects of employment. This includes hiring, pay, promotion and firing. They also prohibit employers from retaliating against a person who tries to enforce his or her rights under the law.

Laws provide that employers must offer reasonable accommodations to disabled workers. This may mean providing special adaptive equipment, like works paces that accommodate wheelchairs or special adaptive keyboards. It can also mean that they must allow employees to pursue alternate work schedules.

YOU PROBABLY HAVE MORE OPTIONS THAN YOU THINK

Most people are fearful of a layoff. But the truth is that layoffs, while difficult, can come with a great deal of opportunities. It may be time for a needed career change or an executive severance package that gives you the resources needed to refocus on important things: like your family or a bit of much-needed leisure time.

By handling severance negotiations on your own, you may be giving up these valuable opportunities. Many employers are willing to be flexible in severance negotiations. With some skillful negotiation, they may offer career development opportunities, extended healthcare benefits or other perks in addition to financial compensation.

KNOW WHICH RIGHTS YOU'RE WAIVING

Employees should also be aware that there is a cost to accepting an executive severance package. Most employers ask that employees who receive these packages waive their right to file a lawsuit later.

If you think that you might be the victim of wrongful termination, age discrimination, disability discrimination or any other illegal employment practices, you may want to consider taking legal action instead. While a severance package means benefits now, a successful settlement or jury verdict could mean a great deal more compensation later. It could also give you the opportunity to hold your employer accountable for unethical and illegal actions taken against you.
