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. In California, any employer decisions to hire, assign a job position, or issue a promotion can not be based on a person's disability.
If the costs are reasonable, workers with disabilities are entitled to any special equipment required for work from their employers. This is on top of the requirement to provide equal treatment. Additionally, the ADA makes it illegal to discriminate against persons based on their relationship to persons who have a disability requiring special needs.
