Disabilities & Accomodations
If you believe that you have been the victim of disability discrimination in the workplace because you suffer from either a physical disability or a mental disability, or if you are a disabled employee and your employer is refusing to provide you with reasonable accommodations, you need an experienced Employment Lawyer fighting for you. Laguna Beach Employment Attorney Geniene Stillwell and the lawyers of the Stillwell Law Office are dedicated to vigorously protecting Employee Rights.

The Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), enforced by the Department of Fair Employment and Housing (DFEH) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) respectively, provide protection for employees who have physical or mental disabilities.

The FEHA and the ADA prohibit discrimination and / or harassment by employers or coworkers on the basis of an individual’s disability. They also require employers to provide reasonable accommodations to disabled individuals, unless it would cause the employer “undue hardship.”

Disability is broadly defined under the FEHA as any physical or mental impairment that limits a major life actiivity. Under both the FEHA and ADA, employers are prevented from refusing to hire, promote or provide benefits to individuals because of a disability. They are also prevented from firing an employee on the basis of disability.

Under the ADA’s guidelines, “reasonable accommodations” include but are not limited to:

     < Making the facilities accessible for disabled employees
     < Acquiring or modifying existing equipment for use by disabled
         employees
     < Modification of work schedules
     < Adjusting company policies
     < Allowing time off for medical treatment

Disability discrimination and accommodations cases against
employers can become extremely complex, specifically
in regards to providing reasonable accommodations to employees
and undue hardship. Because of the complexity of these
cases, you need an experienced Employment Lawyer fighting
for you. Attorney Geniene Stillwell has over 27 years experience
in employement litigation and has obtained several multi-million
dollar verdicts on behalf of individual employees.
We can help you fight disability discrimination in the workplace.
