Temecula Disability Discrimination Lawyers
Fighting for the Rights of Disabled Workers in Temecula, CA
If you have ever become the victim of employment discrimination, then you are not alone. It is not uncommon for someone to get laid off because of a disability or medication condition. Even if you felt you were fully qualified for the job, discrimination in the workplace can still occur.
If the state of California deems you to be an “at-will” employee, then your employer may terminate you at any time; however, the law has established specific statutes and policies to protect you from discrimination, including discrimination based on a disability.
This is where Law Office of Neda Aguirre comes in. We know that living with a disability is difficult, let alone having an employer discriminate against you for it. If you or someone you know has been a victim of disability discrimination, then you need to contact our Temecula disability discrimination team today!
What Is Disability Discrimination and How Do You Qualify?
Both the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) forbid the act of employment discrimination. Those who have been diagnosed with a disability must be provided reasonable accommodation for their role in the workplace. Although there are minor exceptions to that rule, employers may not discriminate because of race, age, gender, origin, religion, disability, or political association.
There are many different types of disability discrimination in the workplace, including:
- Refusal to promote
- Refusal of disability leave
- Lower pay
- Inefficient training
- Lack of proper benefits
- Not hiring due to disability
What if My Employer Retaliates Against Me?
The law is on your side! If you act as a whistleblower, file for workers compensation, or even file a report, then you have legal options to help establish justice. The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission states that “an employer may not fire, demote, harass, or retaliate against an individual for filing a charge of discrimination, participating in a discrimination proceeding, or opposing discrimination”.
Contact our law office today if you feel that your employer has retaliated in the following ways:
- Reduction of your pay
- Unfair demotion
- Wrongful termination
- Unnecessary disciplinary actions taken against you
Employment law can often be complex, and rather daunting. We have the experience and the knowledge to help protect your best interests!
