California employers with five or more employees must provide “reasonable accommodation” to employees with conditions that limit their physical abilities. Employers must “engage in a good faith interactive discussion” with you regarding your physical restrictions to allow you to perform your job or to return to work after injury.
Employers may not fire after you were injured. They must work with you to make your job easier to perform. If you need more time to heal from injury, employers must also provide you leave time. We have handled many disability discrimination cases against some of California’s largest employers. If your employer refuses to accommodate your disability, or you were fired after injury, contact us immediately.
