The experienced trial attorney at Yash Law Group serves Bellflower, CA and focuses his practice primarily on employment and labor litigation, such as discrimination lawsuits. Federal laws, such as Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and state laws, such as the California Fair Employment and Housing Act, prohibit discrimination and harassment on the basis of race, skin color, ancestry, national origin, age, religion, disability, mental and/or physical illness, sex, gender (including pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding or related medical conditions), sexual orientation, medical condition, and other “protected characteristics.” Termination, demotion, suspension, or reduction in hours or pay because of a “protected characteristic” is illegal.
Bellflower labor law firm Yash Law Group has helped individuals who have been subject to discrimination due to disabilities, such as pregnancy-related disability, carpel tunnel, deafness, and chronic back pain, recover substantial compensation. Disability discrimination, in particular, may involve discriminating against an employee or applicant due to a mental or physical condition that limited a major life activity. Employees may be subject to workplace discrimination based on an actual disability or based on a perceived disability, meaning a disability the employer perceives the employee to have. Examples of disability discrimination include:
- Discriminatory hiring practices, such as selecting a less qualified employee, against an employee who has a disability that is pregnancy related
- Refusal to provide disability accommodations, such as modified job duties, ergonomic desk or chair, or leave of absence
- Termination of employment immediately after learning of the employee’s disability
- Suspension or demotion
- Direct verbal or written harassment that ostracizes or insults an employee because of a known or perceived disability
- Unfair or less favorable treatment in the workplace as a result of an employee’s mental disability
If an employee is treated unfairly or different due to a disability or other protected characteristic, such as pregnancy, gender, or race, the employee may be entitled to actual damages, reinstatement of the job, punitive damages, and attorney’s fees.Contact Attorney Jesse Singh For a Free Consultation Regarding Discrimination Claims
