Employers Are Penalized for Disability Discrimination

A medical condition is something that impairs your ability to perform your job or the tasks assigned to you, whether temporarily or permanently. Regardless of the permanence or temporary state of your medical condition, your employer is prohibited by law to wantonly discriminate against you only on account of your current medical state. Hence, if you feel that instead of helping you cope with work and providing you with reasonable accommodation, you are instead refused your rightful compensation or assigned more difficult tasks or even demoting you because of your disability, then you seek legal action.

Understanding California Medical Condition Discrimination Laws

According to California medical condition discrimination laws, when a medical condition prevents or inhibits an employee from doing work and the medical condition is temporary and treatable, the employer must allow the disabled employee to go with treatments and be absent from work in order to get better. If your employer demotes you or fires you from your work because of your absences due to treatments, then California medical condition discrimination law provides that you have a right to seek damages against your unjust employer.

In fact, aside from the fact that employers are prohibited from discriminating or retaliating against their employees on account of their medical conditions, the employer is even mandated by law to provide reasonable accommodations.

Reasonable accommodations for a disability or a medical condition may include:

  • Altering your work area
  • Providing you with a different timeline for accomplishing tasks
  • Changing your work schedule
  • Transferring you to another job or task within the workplace

An attorney can help you determine what constitutes reasonable accommodation helping you with your medical condition discrimination law violation claim. If your employer fails to at least provide you with reasonable accommodations on account of your medical condition, you will have grounds for legal action.
