Crenshaw Disability Discrimination Attorney

Disabled persons are a protected class under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as well as California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA). These laws make it illegal for employers to discharge, fail to promote, fail to hire, or otherwise mistreat an individual because of a physical or mental disability so long as that person is able to perform the job. It also requires employers to engage in the interactive process with the employee to find a reasonable accommodation, including leave when appropriate.

Disability discrimination encompasses a wide range of situations, including:

  • Failure to accommodate an employee’s disability
  • Failure to grant required leave under the U.S. Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or the California Family Rights Act (CFRA)
  • Failure to hire a capable employee due to his or her disability
  • Discharging a disabled individual for requesting accommodations or because of his or her disability.

If you believe you have been discriminated against because of a disability, the Law Offices of G. Samuel Cleaver can evaluate your claim and give you recommendations on how to proceed.  This includes help with responding to employer requests for information about a disability.  It also includes counseling on how to protect your rights during the interactive process when the employer and the employee work together to find an accommodation for the employee’s disability.
