WHAT WE DO
Both California and Federal law provides strong protections to workers with physical or mental disabilities. It is illegal to discriminate against an employee because of a disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act is federal law that prohibits disability discrimination on the job. States also have their own anti-discrimination laws that apply to disabled workers. In California, this law is called the Fair Housing and Employment Act. The FEHA offers even more protection than the ADA to California workers who experience disability discrimination.
FEHA prohibits discrimination against individuals that have a “physical disability, mental disability, or medical condition.”
In some circumstances, an employee may also sometimes be considered to have a disability if he or she had a prior history of these conditions (even if he or she had recovered), or if his or her employer (even incorrectly) thinks that person is disabled.
