Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), employers are prohibited from discriminating against qualified individuals with a disability when making employment decisions. Those that do so may be held accountable for their actions.

Disability Discrimination in the Workplace & The Americans Disabilities Act (ADA)
Combined, founding discrimination attorneys Steven Rheuban and Solomon Gresen have more than 40 years of experience practicing law, and our Los Angeles disability discrimination attorneys are devoted to protecting the rights of workers. Our disability discrimination lawyers in Los Angeles can effectively evaluate your situation and determine whether you have a legitimate claim for disability discrimination.
Under both the FEHA and the ADA, employers cannot discriminate based on a disability or serious medical condition when hiring, firing, laying off, considering promotions, offering benefits packages, or taking any other job-related action. Government employers, labor unions, and employment agencies are all subject to these laws (in particular, Title I of the ADA).
These protections cover both employees who are actually disabled and those who are merely perceived to have disabilities. Even if the employee has no actual underlying disability, the employer may be held liable for disability discrimination if a perceived disability was the basis for different treatment.
