If you are disabled in California, your employer is required to make reasonable accommodations to help you perform your job. If your employer refuses to do so, it may be subject to a legal action under the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) and California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA).
I am Karl A. Gerber, founder and lead trial attorney of the Employment Lawyers Group. Our attorneys have extensive experience helping employees assert their rights under ADA and FEHA. Contact us to discuss your case. In Southern California, we have offices in Sherman Oaks, Los Angeles and Oxnard.
A reasonable accommodation is any modification or adjustment to your work environment or your job that will enable you to perform your essential job functions.
Finding a reasonable accommodation is an interactive process between you and your employer. Examples of reasonable accommodations may include a ramp, more frequent breaks, different working hours, modifications to your workstation and the ability to work from home. A reasonable accommodation may also involve a change to your job duties – for example, not requiring you to lift objects heavier than 10 pounds due to a medical restriction.
If your employer is not participating in the interactive process in good faith or refuses to make reasonable accommodations for your disability, contact our lawyers so we can assist you.
