Disability Discrimination Comes in Many Forms
If you have a legally-recognized disability in California, state and federal laws protect you. Therefore, you have the right to seek equitable treatment from your employer, supervisor, and co-workers. The Armstrong Law Firm will hold them liable if they do not uphold reasonable accommodation or anti-discrimination requests.
Our San Jose disability discrimination attorney has fought back against:
- Asking medical questions about an applicant’s or employee’s disability
- Disqualifying job candidates due to a disability
- Failing to provide reasonable accommodation when requested
- Firing you after discovering an existing or new disability
- Retaliating against you over a reasonable accommodation claim
- Other forms of disability discrimination under law
Proving that disability discrimination occurred is challenging without legal advice and guidance. The Armstrong Law Firm will help you identify instances of disability discrimination while preserving evidence as we discover it. Regardless of how tough your case gets, we will stand by your side throughout the entire legal process.
Reasonable Accommodations Are Your Right
The law protects your right to reasonable accommodations or any job modification that allows you to perform your job more effectively. Examples of reasonable accommodations include:
- Facility modifications
- Job restructurings
- Modified schedules
- Equipment modifications
- And more
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) requires employers to account for reasonable accommodation requests. If they do not, then you may have a claim against them. A San Jose disability discrimination attorney at The Armstrong Law Firm will help you explore your case and legal opportunities.
