Hold discriminatory employers accountable for mistreating workers

Diligently Pursuing Justice for Disability Discrimination Since 2002

California employers who discriminate against or fail to accommodate workers with disabilities aren’t just ‘problematic’ – they’re breaking the law. Disabled workers are a protected class under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and California’s Fair Employment & Housing Act (FEHA). These regulations make it illegal for companies to fire, fail to promote, or discriminate against workers based upon either of physical or mental disabilities. To pursue cases like these, you need the support of a legal firm that has the expertise to craft a compelling claim on your behalf, the tenacity to see it through to the end, and a proven record of success in similar circumstances. That’s why Baker Law Group, LLP, is your best choice for pursuing employment-based discrimination lawsuits in California. We have successfully negotiated and litigated numerous disability discrimination suits for California employees, and we’ll help you reclaim your rights and pursue the compensation you deserve.

Disability Discrimination FAQ

Read All Frequently Asked Questions

For a worker to qualify to make a claim of disability discrimination based upon California’s Fair Employment & Housing Act, he or she must be considered a “qualified individual with a disability.” This requires that the worker must be able to perform the essential functions of the job, either with or without a reasonable accommodation. In determining whether or not a worker is “disabled” for the purposes of California law, the law requires that the medical condition impacts a “major life activity.” However, the employee’s job and ability to work is considered a “major life activity” under California law. Therefore, even if the disability doesn’t impact many areas of the employee’s day-to-day life, it is generally considered a disability for the purposes of California law if it affects employment.
