Disability Accomodations

Most California employers must make an effort to accommodate disabled employees where doing so does not impose an undue hardship on the company. This can include job restructuring, a modified work schedule, reassignment to a vacant position, acquiring or modifying equipment or devices, providing additional training, permitting an employee to work from home, or providing leave for treatment and recovery, to name just a few. Some employers may also need to give qualified employees time-off from work for their own, their children’s, or their close family members’ serious health conditions.

The laws governing treatment of disabled employees are complex and ever-changing. Navigating the legal landscape in this area requires an exhaustive understanding of overlapping and conflicting state and federal laws. If you believe your employer has failed to accommodate your disability or you need help securing accommodations for your disability from your employer, you need employment law specialists on your side.
