Ensuring Fair Accommodations for Employees
The Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and California's Fair Employment and Housing Act require employers to provide reasonable accommodations for employees and job applicants with disabilities. Both physical and mental disabilities are covered by the ADA.
The law also protects employees who are married to or in other relationships with disabled people from certain types of discrimination in the workplace. At the law office of Adams | Nye | Becht LLP, we have helped many Californians with disabilities pursue claims against discriminatory employers. Contact our office today for more information about disability discrimination and how we can help you.
San Francisco Disability Discrimination Lawyers
Under the ADA, if an employee or job application has a qualifying disability, his or her employer must make reasonable accommodations for that person -- that is, accommodations that do not impose undue hardships on the employer. It is also illegal to fire people or turn them down for employment based on their disability.
Our law firm has experience representing clients who have been denied accommodations, as well as clients who have been terminated, due to mental disabilities. Reasonable accommodation can include a modified work schedule or workspace, a leave of absence, or any other adjustment that allows an employee to perform his or her responsibilities. With our years of experience in helping clients in disability discrimination cases, we are in a strong position to pursue the best possible outcomes for our clients.
