Our San Francisco Disability Discrimination Lawyer Fights for Compensation
State and federal laws protect disabled employees from harassment, discrimination, and hostility in the workplace. Your employer must also offer reasonable accommodation to help you perform your job when you make a request. Disability discrimination gives you a legal right to compensation for the harm you or your loved one suffered.
The Armstrong Law Firm’s San Francisco harassment and discrimination attorney has won millions in civil awards for clients, including:
- Lost wages and benefits
- Future earning losses
- Mental anguish
- Punitive damages
- Other recoverable awards
Our legal team represents individuals who are the subject of disability discrimination from a supervisor, co-worker, contractor, or customer. If your employer did not take action to protect you from harm, hire our San Francisco disability discrimination attorneys to aggressively fight on your behalf while getting the compensation an employer owes you.
Your Employer Owes You a Reasonable Accommodation Duty
Reasonable accommodations are adjustments made to the hiring, working, or termination of a position when you have a proven need, such as a short- or long-term disability. You have the right to a reasonable accommodation request and job modification, including but not limited to:
- Job modifications
- Position reassignment
- Flexible schedules
- Medical leave of absence
- Accessibility equipment
- Wheelchair access
- Testing modifications
Both employers and employees must work under a good faith interactive process when requesting and providing reasonable accommodation requests. This means that there should be a discussion as to how the employee is affected and what they need to perform their roles adequately. Your employer must act in good faith to support your needs as long as the accommodation request is reasonable.
