Disability Discrimination

Disability discrimination is the improper treatment of a job applicant or employee based on their physical or mental impairment.

Employment discrimination based on a real or perceived disability is a violation of California state and federal law. Disability discrimination cases generally require exhausting administrative remedies before the individual can file a lawsuit against the employer.

California law prohibits employers with five or more employees from discriminating on the basis of an employee's physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, or genetic condition. See California Government Code Section 12940. Employers are required to provide a reasonable accommodation to disabled employees, unless doing so would result in undue hardship.
