Los Angeles Disability Discrimination Lawyers
Disabled persons are a protected class under the federal Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). This law makes it illegal for employers to discharge, fail to promote, fail to hire, or otherwise mistreat an individual because of a physical or mental handicap so long as that person is able to perform the job. It also requires employers to make reasonable accommodations for employees with special needs.

If you believe you are a victim of disability discrimination, a lawyer at our law firm can counsel you on your employee rights and legal options for pursuing a lawsuit.
