Disabilities Under California Law

Both California and Federal law give individuals with disabilities protection from discrimination in the workplace. The various laws ensure that disabled persons in Irvine have an equal opportunity to get hired and obtain promotions in their choice of field. Disability laws also require employers to include reasonable accomodations in order that disabled people may correctly perform their job.

California Employment for the Disabled

Whether you are employed by a government agency or a private employer, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against the disabled. When making decisions regarding hiring, job assignment, or promotions, employers in California cannot consider a citizen's disability.

Besides treating them equally, Irvine employers must also provide disabled workers with any specific equipment required for work, according to reasonable costs. The act also prohibits discrimination against persons based on their relation to a person with a disability that poses special needs.

Life in Irvine

Irvine is a city that has been meticulously planned. That could be why CNN voted it 4th best place to live in the entire United States but there are a number of other reasons like the FBI stating Irvine has the least violent crime in any city with a population over 100,000. Over twice that number live within Irvine city limits and enjoy access to all Irvine has to offer.

Over 50 companies have their world headquarters in Irvine including Taco Bell, Ultimate Ears, Felt Bicycles, LA Fitness, and Meade Instruments. Toshiba Corporations, Samsung Electronics, Kia Motors, Asics, and Shimano all operate their North American Headquarters from Irvine as well. With so many large businesses in Irvine, you'd probably be surprised to find out the University of California, Irvine and Irvine unified School District are still the top two employers in the city. Communications giant Cellco Partnership/Verizon Wireless and medical companies Edwards Lifesciences and Allergan are three other big hitters in the Irvine economy.

There's plenty of opportunity for recreation among Irvine residents and visitors. The City of Irvine offers countless community and neighborhood parks. The Northwood Community Park offers one of the most distinctive sights. The Northwood Gratitude and Honor Memorial is exceptional because it's the first United States memorial to be built before the war was over. Honoring the fallen U.S. military personnel from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan, it's also the only memorial that will be updated yearly to display the 5,700+ names. Irvine also hosts the Irvine Global Village Festival celebrating diversity. The festival offers a wide range of exhibitions, entertainment, and food from cultures around the globe.
