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.
