Discrimination Based On A Medical Condition
Many Americans have a general familiarity with the employment rights provided by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). These rights apply to both permanent and temporary disabilities and prevent employers from discriminating against qualified individuals who have disabilities when making decisions about:
- Firing and layoffs
- Job assignments and promotions
- Fringe benefits
- Other terms and conditions of employment
In addition, employers may be required to provide reasonable accommodations for qualified disabled employees and potential employees.
If you have a disability and believe you have faced discrimination at work, contact the Pasadena employment law firm Bononi Law Group, LLP. Our team includes legal lecturers and educators, several attorneys selected for California Super Lawyers designation and a lawyer who has been selected as one of The Best Lawyers in America each year for more than 20 years.
We combine high-level employment law credentials with a long track record of results. We have litigated hundreds of discrimination cases, including a recent disability discrimination lawsuit against a public entity that resulted in a $400,000 award.
ADA legal protections extend beyond mobility and dexterity disabilities. Employees suffering from AIDS/HIV, allergies, post-traumatic stress disorder and mental/emotional disorders may also have legal protections in the workplace.
