Disability Discrimination Lawyer in San Diego
Under Federal & State law, employers are prohibited from discriminating against potential or current employees who have been diagnosed with either a physical or mental disability. The term "discrimination" is applicable to a wide variety of conduct.
Disability Discrimination includes engaging in employee harassment. Harassment includes but is not limited to making disparaging remarks about the individual's disability, mocking the disabled co-worker, and disseminating demeaning materials regarding the employee's disability.
Employers are forbidden from terminating an employee, or reducing their hours and / or compensation due to a disability.
Additionally, Disability Discrimination also includes the refusal to do the following based solely on a worker's disability:
Award Equal Pay or Compensation, including Merit Raises or Bonuses
Provide Benefits that other Employees Receive
Provide the Opportunity for Promotion
Provide Training that is Available to Other Employees
If you have been subjected to any of these behaviors, please complete our San Diego employment Law Case Evaluation Form. An attorney will review the information that you give us, and will contact you to make an appointment for your free, personal consultation.
Our San Diego employment Lawyers are skilled negotiators, and will make every reasonable effort to settle your matter fairly and justly. However, if your employer refuses to participate in good faith settlement negotiations, our attorneys possess the experience to take your case to trial and obtain results.
San Diego Disability Accommodation Attorneys
Employers must make reasonable accommodations on behalf of their disabled employees that will allow them to not only carry out their work duties, but also allow the disabled to obtain either the medical or mental health care which they require.
Reasonable Accommodations are defined as:
Adjusting a disabled employee’s work area thereby allowing the employee to do their work.
Providing an accessible work space and restroom accessibility for the physically disabled.
Adjusting an employee’s hours so that they may receive the necessary medical care, rehabilitative care, physical therapy, or mental health care which they require.
The primary test with respect to the accommodations requirement is “reasonableness,” particularly with regards to how many individuals work for the employer and the employee’s work duties. Please call a disability accommodation attorney today at (619) 819-9396 or (619) 819-5120 for additional information.
