Disability Discrimination Is Illegal
If you’re a person with disabilities, you deserve to earn a livelihood just like anyone else. Federal and state employment laws make it illegal for employers to discriminate against you on the basis of your disability.
At Khatib Law, APC, I stand up for employees with disabilities. I’m Mazen Khatib, the firm’s founder and an experienced employment lawyer. My goal is to help lift the weight of illegal employment discrimination, including disability discrimination. I handle disability discrimination cases throughout Ontario, California, and beyond.
When I prepare disability discrimination cases, I leave nothing to fate or chance. I focus on the facts to get clients the results they deserve.
What Counts As A Disability?
A disability is a medical condition – whether physical, mental or emotional – that impacts your day-to-day life. It covers almost any condition that limits your basic activities and ability to care for yourself.
Mental disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), organic brain syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and learning disabilities may all count as disabilities for purposes of employment law, as do vision and hearing impairments.
What Are Your Disability Law Rights?
The law recognizes that people with disabilities deserve gainful employment. It requires employers to offer reasonable accommodations to those with disabilities, and it prohibits them from discriminating against employees or potential hires on the basis of a disability.
Specifically, the law requires employers to:
- Give potential hires with disabilities the same consideration as they would an able-bodied applicant.
- Give them the same promotion and advancement opportunities.
- Provide the same terms and conditions of employment.
- Offer reasonable accommodations for their disability to enable them to succeed in their job.
