Woodland Hills Disability Discrimination Attorney
Seek the Restitution You Deserve with Our Firm
Under both state and federal laws, it is illegal for employers to discriminate against workers with disabilities. Unfortunately, countless employers still engage in actions and policies that mistreat their disabled workers every day. When this happens, adversely affected workers likely have the grounds to seek restitution from the employers that wronged them.
At the Law Office of Payab & Associates, we believe no worker with a disability should face discrimination. Our diligent proven employment law advocates have recovered millions in relief for workers. We are ready to bring assertive, effective counsel to your discrimination claim.
Our firm is ready to make your voice heard on this matter. Contact our office today to request a consultation with our team of attorneys for workplace disability rights.
Disability Discrimination in the Workplace
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all employees to provide certain accommodations for disabled workers at their place of business. Failing to do not only inhibits the disabled worker's ability to contribute but also causes unnecessary hardship for the worker.
Just some of the ADA requirements include:
- Providing handicap access in the bathroom and kitchen areas
- Providing accessible entries and exits to the workplace
- Providing safe floor and ground surfaces
- Providing adequate parking for any disabled workers
- Providing ramps, elevator access, and other needed property features
People with disabilities also have the right to equal opportunities for employment and advancement. The ADA and other laws prohibit employers from discriminating against disabled workers in other, more common ways. These include unlawful terminations, withholding raises and promotions, etc. Workers with a perceived disability are also protected.
Filing a Disability Discrimination Lawsuit
Before filing a lawsuit for disability discrimination, you must first be able to prove you have a disability. Under the ADA, a disability is any impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. This includes both physical and mental impairments.
Before going to court, you would first file your charge with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The EEOC will review the claim and attempt to provide a remedy. You will then receive a Right to Sue letter, allowing you to take your employer to court.
If you have a disability and believe you have been mistreated in the workplace, we are ready to hear from you. Our disability attorneys can provide you the protection and advocacy you need.
