California Disability Discrimination By Association
Employers may not discriminate against you because of the expense of a disabled loved one, such as the expense of adding the loved one to a health insurance plan. Employers must also not discriminate or adversely alter your employment because of disability association if your loved one has a genetic or serious disability that may be passed on. Employers are also prevented by law from discrimination in employment because your disabled loved one is a “distraction.”
These three forms of disability discrimination are illegal. Your right to associate with a disabled loved one is clear. If your employer uses your relationship with a qualified individual to demote you, terminate you, harass you or refuse to promote you, contact our Pasadena attorneys immediately.
