Medical and Disability Discrimination
Awareness of anti-discrimination laws regarding race, ancestry, national origin, color, religion, age, gender and sexual orientation is widespread. But did you know that California anti-discrimination laws also prohibit discrimination on the basis of medical conditions and disability leave?
Californians have a right to work regardless of their age, race and other factors. Californians also have a right to be free from workplace discrimination regarding their need for occasional time off to obtain medical care, recover from medical procedures or care for loved ones. Californians also have a right to reasonable accommodations in the workplace in regard to physical and emotional limitations.
If you have questions regarding your medical and disability rights in the workplace, or feel you are being discriminated against at work, we can help. The Los Angeles, California, medical and disability discrimination law firm of Lyon Law has helped thousands of workers and employees in the greater Los Angeles area.
Has your employer failed to provide accommodations in the workplace for a physical or emotional medical condition? Have you been fired or penalized as a result of your need for medical or disability leave? Contact Lyon Law at (310) 818-7700 for experienced legal help.
If you or your wife needs time off due to pregnancy, you have numerous rights under several state and federal maternity laws, including the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). If you are unable to perform your current duties at work, your employer is required to investigate ways to adjust your work space, your duties or, in the case of emotional difficulties, your stress. And if you need an extended amount of time off for medical recovery, or need to receive prolonged or permanent disability pay, it is vital that your employer understand and support your rights.
