Have You Been Retaliated Against Due to Your Disability?
If you suffer from a disabling condition, work can be a challenge. You may need some accommodations to help you continue working, and your employer may seem less than responsive or sometimes just plain hostile to your requests.
It shouldn’t be this way. California has numerous laws that prohibit discrimination in the workplace. For many workers, the challenge is knowing which laws apply to their situation and how to invoke their protection. If you need help because your employer has retaliated against you based on your disability or has failed to provide you with a reasonable accommodation, Light Law Group, can help.
Has Your Employer Complied With California Law Protecting Disabled Workers?
Did you know that there are several triggers giving rise to your employer’s obligation to engage in a timely, good faith, interactive process with you to determine whether your disability and medical restrictions can be accommodated?
These triggers include when you request an accommodation, but your employer’s obligation also arises in two less obvious scenarios:
- When the employer becomes aware of the need for an accommodation through a third party or by observation.
- When an employee with a disability exhausts the leave provided under some other law and remains unable to return to work.
If your employer has failed to meet its obligations, we will proceed with the necessary legal step to enforce your rights. We will discuss your legal options, explain the process, and give you the representation you deserve.
