California law protects disabled workers from discrimination

It is important that disabled individuals are given the same chance to perform work they are qualified for and earn a living as individuals who do not have a disability do. Disabled persons in California are protected from workplace discrimination both by federal law and by state law. Three of these state laws include the Disabled Persons Act, the Unruh Civil Rights Act and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act. Not only do these laws protect disabled individuals from being discriminated against in the workplace, but they also require employers to make "reasonable accommodations" that will allow a disabled individual to perform their work duties.

What rules are there against workplace discrimination?

Rules exist against workplace discrimination to prevent California residents from experiencing negative work outcomes for illegitimate reasons. These reasons include race, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, medical condition, pregnancy, national origin, religion, military service, and association with a disabled co-worker or disabled family member. This blog post will quickly describe some of the kinds of discrimination that are not permitted under California law.
