WHAT IS DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION?
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Employment Act prohibits disability discrimination.

They are also prohibited from discriminating against individuals who have a disability or medical condition, especially one which does not prevent them from doing their job.
This type of discrimination applies to the following actions:
THE LAW IS ON YOUR SIDE
In addition to protecting you from harassment and unfair hiring and firing practices, employment law protects you from being denied medical leave. This is considered to be a reasonable accommodation and if your employer maintains an inflexible policy, they may be in violation of the ADA. Before you take any steps, it is important that you take action to speak with a knowledgeable Los Angeles disability discrimination attorney from Levin & Nalbandyan, LLP.
