Disabilities Under California Law

Both California and Federal law give individuals with disabilities protection against discrimination in the workplace. The various laws ensure that disabled individuals in Lakewood 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 properly perform their job.

California Employment for the Disabled

Whether you are employed by a government agency or a private company, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) prohibits discrimination against the disabled. In California, any employer decisions to hire, assign a job position, or issue a promotion may not be based on a person's disability.

Employers in Lakewood must also provide any special equipment that the disabled person may require for performing duites, so long costs are reasonable. This is in addition to providing fair treatment. The act also prohibits discrimination against someone based on their relation to a person with a disability that poses special needs.
