Disability Discrimination Attorneys in Sacramento

Law Firm Dedicated to Representing Executives and Employees Only

Sacramento ADA Lawyers and Disability Discrimination Attorneys

The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) strictly prohibit employers from discriminating against employees merely based on a physical or mental disability.  In addition, if an employee has a disability but is able to perform the tasks of the job with reasonable accommodations, the employer must provide those to the employee.  This also extends to temporary physical or mental disabilities.  If you have any questions about the applicability of your disability to the ADA or FEHA, please call us today at 877-789-9707 or complete the online form and our office will contact you.

California has some of the strictest anti-discrimination laws and employee-friendly courts.  Therefore, if you believe that you were discriminated against by an employer or future employer due to your disability, contact our office as soon as possible since some of the disability discrimination laws contain tight filing deadlines.  Your consultation is free and we accept disability discrimination cases on a contingency basis.  This means that we do not receive any fees if there is no compensation recovered.

Employment-Based Disability Discrimination

At its foundation, the ADA prohibits discrimination against applicants and employees which is contingent upon a disability.  Discrimination may take the form of none-hiring, demotions, none-promotions, training, wages, and other work-related compensation and benefits.  There are also protections against employers asking about the applicant’s disability before he or she is hired.  Please note that the ADA only applies to companies that have 15 or more employees while FEHA is more protective in that it applies to companies that have 5 or more employees.  There are also provisions about who is considered an employee.  Our attorneys are well versed in these laws and will be able to assess your case and provide proper guidance as to whether accommodations should have been made or disability discrimination took place.

What is Considered “Reasonable”?

California employers must provide their disabled employees with reasonable accommodations for job-related tasks.  The following accommodations are commonly considered reasonable:

-Installing handrails and ramps
-Providing individual work schedule such as to assist someone with vision issues
-Special equipment or devices may be provided
-Transferring the employee to a different location

Reasonable Accommodation v. Undue Hardship

It is important to know that companies that are required to make reasonable accommodations may meet certain exceptions.   These exceptions permit companies to forgo costly or difficult accommodations since they will cause “undue hardship” to the company.  Each scenario has its own facts and must be evaluated carefully by our attorneys and retained experts. In addition, companies do not have to lower their performance expectations to accommodate a disabled employee.  However, they must reasonably accommodate an employee so that he or she may still be able to adequately perform.

Each Case Is Unique – Don’t Be a Victim!

When you speak with our dedicated and experienced attorney, he or she will counsel you on what may be subject to unlawful disability discrimination.  If both you and the attorney conclude that disability discrimination occurred, the attorney will guide you on what steps to take to protect your legal options and how to obtain compensation, re-instatement, corrective action and other avenues.  We will also represent you when filing a claim with the government agency in addition to filing your claim in court

Remedies Are Based on Proper Representation and Accurate Strategy

Success is contingent on the attorney representation.  Proper representation achieves maximum results based on the remedies obtained under the ADEA and FEHA.  Some of these remedies include lost wages, front pay which is pay that will compensate the employee for lost future earnings that would have been earned if he or she was not discriminated against, reinstatement to the position, attorney’s fees and court costs.  In addition, if we can show that the age discrimination was willful, then your award may include double wage damages and benefit damages.

Disability Discrimination Attorney in Sacramento

5/5 stars

“I currently don’t drive and was faced with numerous legal documents which I needed my attorney’s help on. The associate attorney from Steve’s office who took me under his wing and actually took an Uber (as he doesn’t drive either!) to Steve’s nearest office in Irvine and met with me three separate times to help fill out the paperwork. I never once worried about the litigation process after Steve and his team took my case. The case is still active and its clear they have the defendants on the ropes. Can’t wait for the case to settle and getting this far in only a few months is beyond what other law firms told me was every doable. FIVE STARS to this Great Firm. I’ve already recommended several friends to them.
