Alameda County Disability Discrimination Lawyer
As a disabled person, you might need a few special accommodations to perform to your best ability at work. For example, if you are in a wheelchair, you need handicap accessible entrances to your building and office space. If you are undergoing cancer treatments, you might need a few more rest breaks in your work day. Under federal and state law, you are entitled to reasonable accommodations at your workplace. Bohbot & Riles wants to help if your employer is failing to provide reasonable accommodations.
Contact us for experience + guidance + service. If you believe you are being discriminated against at work because of a disability, or if your employer is not providing you with reasonable accommodations, talk to our Oakland reasonable accommodation attorneys. To have Bohbot & Riles evaluate your case, please submit a case submission questionnaire. We are conveniently located in Oakland. We speak French.
Federal and State Law Is on Your Side
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and California's Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) protect employees with disabling conditions. If you are fired, denied leave, denied FMLA leave, retaliated against for your disability or otherwise not accommodated for your disability, you may be entitled to compensation. Our Alameda County disability discrimination attorneys protect the rights of workers who have been discriminated against due to disability.
What is a disability?
A "disability" can be broadly defined. In employment law, a disability is any physical or mental condition that makes it hard for an employee to work. Bohbot & Riles represents workers who are living with disabilities that include:
- Back injuries
- Hearing impairments
- Heart conditions
- Knee injuries
- Visual impairments
If you have a disability, your employer is required by law to provide reasonable accommodations. You may require an extended leave, frequent breaks, a special computer, a sign language interpreter or a change in job duties. Your employer should work with you to make sure you can perform to the best of your ability.
If your employer has failed to provide you with reasonable accommodations, talk to one of our attorneys about your options.
