DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION AND ACCOMMODATION LAW

All California employees are entitled to be paid at least the minimum wage, which is currently $8/hr; it will increase to $9/hr effective July 1, 2014 and to $10/hr effective January 1, 2016.

Under California law, if an employee requires time off or a medical leave of absence due to an ADA or FEHA protected disability or medical condition, an employer may be required to provide that time off or additional medical leave time as a reasonable accommodation for that disability even if the employee has already used 12 weeks of leave under the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) or California’s Family Right’s Act.

Under California law, employees with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations, including medical leaves of absence, and extensions of medical leaves of absence. Unless an employer can prove that a requested accommodation would impose an undue hardship on its operations, California employers will be held liable for failing to provide any accommodation that would have permitted an employee to return to work and perform his or her essential job functions. The lawyers at the Feldman Browne Olivares, APC have obtained monetary settlements and awards on behalf of employees with disabilities who were denied accommodations, including employees working in Los Angeles, San Diego, Santa Barbara, San Francisco, Sacramento, and Oakland.
