Disability Discrimination Attorneys Serving People Across Southern California
Under California and Federal law, disabled employees are entitled to reasonable accommodations in the workplace. Generally speaking, unless a specific accommodation is an “undue hardship” for the employer, the employer must make reasonable accommodations for disabled employees. As a practical matter, these laws require employers to provide modified devices or modified equipment so that handicapped employees can do their jobs. Their place of work should also be handicapped-accessible.
Even though the laws surrounding reasonable accommodations are clear, there are still employers who refuse to adhere to them. If you have reason to believe your employer is violating your legal rights, a knowledgeable lawyer can make a substantial difference. We are the employment law attorneys at SANFORD A. KASSEL, A Professional Law Corporation. From our offices based in San Bernardino, we take on failure-to-accommodate claims for people throughout the region.
Holding Employers Responsible In Disability Discrimination Claims
When confronted with accusations of disability discrimination, employers are likely to vigorously deny the claim, even when there is strong evidence of discrimination. Most likely, employers will claim that any attempt at a reasonable accommodation would be an undue burden on them.
In order to overcome these or other obstacles, we will look closely at the facts of the case and the relevant statutes and case law to prove why the employer violated the law.
