Los Angeles Disability Rights Lawyers
If you are disabled and your rights have been violated, you are not alone. You may be seeking a lawyer in Los Angeles that can help you fight back against this discrimination. If an employer would not hire you, unjustly fired you or has discriminated against you in any way based upon a disability, we are on your side. We will pursue your best interests and hold accountable any individual or organization that did not prioritize your constitutional guarantees.
Despite the laws that are in place, many employers refuse to provide disabled people with the opportunity to demonstrate their skill. Disabled people routinely face discrimination in hiring and in obtaining promotions. Additionally, employers often fail to provide reasonable accommodations to allow people with disabilities to fully perform their jobs. Not only is this unfair – it's illegal. For a California disability rights attorney, contact Arias Ozzello & Gignac.
Unfortunately, employers are not the only violators. Educational institutions, municipal governments, landlords and others must all be policed so that they allow all people to have equal access. If your rights have been violated because of your disability, you may have legal recourse.
Lawyers Defending the Americans with Disabilities Act
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and California's equivalent, the Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), prevent employment discrimination based on a disability or a perceived disability. Under these laws, employers are required to provide the disabled with access to facilities and make reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities. The ADA and the FEHA are essential to millions of Americans' civil rights and they represent equality for all people. But these laws must be regularly and aggressively defended to ensure their viability.
