Disability / Medical Condition Discrimination
Under federal and California employment laws, it is unlawful for an employer to fire an employee based on a disability or medical condition. It is also unlawful for employers to retaliate against employees for taking leaves of absence for the employee’s or a close family member’s medical condition.
If you were fired due to an actual or perceived disability or medical condition or for taking medical leave, the attorneys at California Employment Counsel, APC, are here to help you explore your legal rights and options.

Were Your Workplace Rights Violated?
The federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), California’s Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA) and other statutes protect employees who suffer from disabilities and medical conditions.
Wrongful termination is only one way in which employers violate the rights of disabled employees. It is also unlawful for employers to:
- Deny disabled employees reasonable accommodations
- Demote or deny promotion to disabled employees
- Allow harassment of disabled employees
- Retaliate against disabled employees for reporting unlawful workplace practices
Our lawyers have extensive experience handling workplace discrimination claims and can protect your rights. We will aggressively pursue the most favorable outcome, which may include compensation for past lost wages, future lost wages and emotional distress.
