Disability Discrimination Proudly Serving All of California

Disability Discrimination Lawyer in Sacramento

Strategic Representation for Employees

For many years, people with long-term or short-term disabilities faced great discrimination. Thanks to the Americans with Disabilities Act, there were at least legal consequences added

for those who made biased remarks or behaved in a bullying, prejudiced way. Today, an increasing portion of our population is made of those who have disabilities. Unfortunately, despite this progress, there are still employers or entire companies which attempt to get away with treating those with disabilities differently. This behavior can range from stereotyping to wrongful termination to outright bullying, and will create terrible damage for your income, your reputation, and your overall well-being.

Anyone who has suffered unfair treatment on account of their medical condition or disability has the right to seek justice with our disability discrimination attorney in Sacramento. Trust in the Law Office of Jeffrey D. Fulton to aggressively fight your cause.

Contact us now at (916) 318-3388 so our employment law attorney can answer all your questions regarding fair disability recompense for unfair treatment.

Who Is Covered Under the Disability Laws in California?

Many people have certain stereotypes about what "counts" as a disability. However, the boundaries defining disability are much broader than what people assume.

This means that under California's laws, you can be protected in multiple events, such as if you have:

  • Any form of disorder, condition, physiological disease, anatomical loss, or cosmetic disfigurement which hinders you from being able to take part in key activities and behaviors of life, such as walking, hearing, talking, learning, seeing, or working
  • A condition that appears to be disabling or possibly disabling in the view of your employer
  • A background of a long-term impairment or medical history of a disease which is in remission, such as cancer
  • A temporary impairment or physical condition that is either mental or physical, which could last less than six months, including broken limbs or pulled muscles, or pregnancy
  • A permanent or temporary case of a neurological disorder or mental health difficulties, whether stress, anxiety, depression, or ADHD

Examples of Discrimination in California

Many people associate discrimination with overt bullying, but wrongful treatment against those with disabilities could look much different, depending on circumstances. In fact, employers and companies often use more subtle approaches of discrimination, disguising their bias under excuses that an employee cannot function in a role. Sometimes, employers will fail to give the proper accommodations for an employee's disability, medical condition, or disease. This might be neglectful, or it might be purposeful, to save expenses.

Employers have often been known to refuse giving someone entitled leave, whether for maternity needs or recuperation after surgery. At other times, such discrimination can amplify into full termination or discharge against a completely qualified employee, simply on account of their disabled or perceived disabled status.
