DISABILITY DISCRIMINATION AND THE LAW
Were you discriminated against at work because of a physical disability? If you were fired, laid off, denied a promotion, demoted or otherwise discriminated against because of a physical condition, you may be able to file a disability discrimination claim and receive financial compensation.
The employment law attorneys of Zeldes Haeggquist & Eck, LLP, in San Diego, are experienced in handling disability discrimination claims. Our lawyers have won financial compensation for clients who were discriminated against because of permanent or temporary disabilities.
An Unwelcome Surprise
We frequently represent employees who were fired while they were out on medical or maternity leave, or shortly after they returned to work.
One of our clients had worked for the same company for 17 years before she had neck surgery that left her with a limited range of motion. She returned to work, but was fired shortly thereafter because of her disability.
A Thorough Examination of the Facts
Our lawyers will carefully analyze your case. We will look at how long you have worked for the company, your record of performance, the reason the employer gave for its actions, and the type and amount of damages you have suffered. Did you always have positive performance reviews until you became disabled? We will conduct a thorough investigation of the facts. If we find disability discrimination occurred, we will aggressively pursue full compensation for your damages.
Under the American’s with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), an employer may not take adverse action against an employee because of the person’s disabling condition.
