California Disability Discrimination: The ADA and FEHA

California FEHA & ADA Laws

The Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”) and the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (“FEHA”) protect qualified people with disabilities but who can do the job. It requires employers to make reasonable accommodations to allow disabled people to perform a job’s essential functions. For employees with a disability or serious medical condition who can perform the essential functions of the job, these laws provide protection from discrimination.
