Fight Disability And Medical Discrimination
A disability can affect every aspect of your life, but your work life most of all. If a disability is affecting you in the workplace, you should know that California state and federal laws protect your right to work. They make sure that Californians with disabilities or other conditions that impact their ability to work, such as pregnancy and new parenthood through adoption, can remain on the job with reasonable accommodations.
At Toni Jaramilla, A Professional Law Corporation, our lawyers are dedicated to upholding the law and protecting workers’ rights. From law offices in Los Angeles, we advocate for our clients so they may be given the time and support they need from their employers to effectively do their jobs, as follows:
- Time to attend doctors’ appointments
- Up to 12 weeks of leave after the birth or adoption of a child
- Additional restroom breaks as needed
- Extra leave time to recuperate from injuries or illnesses
- Special ergonomic arrangement of a worker’s desk, workstation or other workspaces, such as a special chair or computer keyboard
We also represent clients in retaliation claims after they have filed complaints about disability discrimination or asked for reasonable accommodations for disabilities. It is not unusual for employers to take action against employees, firing them or reducing their hours when employees make legitimate, reasonable requests for the extra support needed because of a disability. If your Los Angeles area employer has retaliated against you and you think your complaint about discrimination over your disability is involved, speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
Taking Action Over Failure To Accommodate A Disability
As experienced employment and labor law attorneys, we at Toni Jaramilla, A Professional Law Corporation, know when discrimination has occurred once we know the facts. Our thorough and complete knowledge of the law helps us identify an employer’s illegal actions.
If your employer has violated the law, we can take action on your behalf. Depending on your situation, we may be able to get your job back, get you the accommodations you need, or get you financial compensation for the harm you experienced. The law provides for compensation for lost wages and benefits after a wrongful termination related to a disability. We may also be able to force your employer to pay your legal costs.
