From back pain and knee problems to carpal tunnel and repetitive stress injuries, a disability is anything that affects one's activities of daily living. If you have been the victim of unlawful discrimination, such as the failure to hire, failure to promote, unfair transfer, being fired, retaliation or any other adverse personnel action, take action now to defend your rights.

The Law Protects Workers Against Disability Discrimination

The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and California's own Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) protect workers against disability discrimination. At the Law Office of Ronald M. Stein Attorney at Law, we can help you get the protection and damages to which are you entitled under these laws.

Two of the most common forms of disability discrimination are:

  • Disability not being accommodated: In many cases, even a small accommodation can make all the difference to an employee with a disability. From respirators, ergonomic chairs and keyboards, and masks and a clean work environment, to bigger modifications such as voice-activated computers, structural changes and modified work stations, 90 percent of people with disabilities can be accommodated. Many employers would rather dismiss the problem entirely and refuse to even talk to their employee about possible options. It is per se unlawful for your employer not to talk to you about your accommodation options. Under the ADA, your employer is obligated to try to accommodate your disability.
  • Treating you as if you are disabled, even if you aren't: Have you continued to do your job successfully, but your employer refuses to let you work only after the workers' compensation determination of your impairment? In other cases, an employer may set a specific job requirement (for example, needing to lift 200 pounds) and claim an employee cannot do the job, even though you can perform all of the essential aspects of that job. We will help you fight these unlawful practices and keep your job.

How We Can Help You With Your Disability Discrimination Claim

Protecting your interests throughout the process, it is our role to work with you and your employer to start a conversation about accommodation, identify necessary workplace modifications and ensure those solutions are put into effect. Under the law, your employer must try to accommodate your disability in order to keep you working. If you have a disability and have faced workplace discrimination as a result, attorney Ronald Stein will make sure your employer pays attention and complies with its obligations under the ADA and FEHA.
