Ensuring Equal Access for People With Disabilities
The California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), the Unruh Civil Rights Act, and the Disabled Persons Act are state laws that protect people from discrimination based on disability. The laws also require employers, housing providers and business establishments to make reasonable accommodations so that people with disabilities can perform their jobs, have equal housing opportunities, and, have equal access to businesses and services.
In California disabilities are broadly defined as conditions that limit a major life activity, including physical and mental disabilities, as well as medical conditions such as cancer or HIV/AIDS. California definitions and protections can be broader than protections under federal law.
Potter Handy, LLP has represented hundreds of persons with disabilities who have been discriminated against on the basis of their disability.
