Harassment and Discrimination Based on Health Care Condition

Los Angeles Employment Law Attorneys

Employers are not allowed to discriminate against any employee or applicant based on his or her health care condition. This includes a person who has a history of disability, such as cancer that is in remission or that is controlled, or is believed to have a physical or mental impairment, even if that person does not have such an impairment.

The law requires that employers provide reasonable accommodations to employees and job applicants with disabilities, unless doing so would cause significant difficulties or expenses for the employers.

At the employment law firm of the Bononi Law Group, LLP, our firm has handled hundreds of workplace discrimination cases, including those involving harassment and discrimination based on health care condition.

File a Claim With the Assistance of an Experienced Lawyer

The law does not allow for anyone to be discriminated against when it comes to any aspect of employment, including:

  • Hiring
  • Firing and layoffs
  • Compensation
  • Job assignments and promotions
  • Training
  • Fringe benefits
  • Other terms and conditions of employment

Harassment can be as simple as an offensive remark about a health care condition or disability, or it can be as serious as an adverse employment decision (the person being fired or demoted). Our firm assists clients who have been adversely impacted by this type of discrimination.
